External Agency Support

Our first priority is to work with you to support your child in every way possible  through quality first teaching. Following the Newcastle SEND Graduated Response, there may be times when we may access external support from one or more agency.

These external agencies may act in an advisory capacity, or provide additional specialist assessment or be involved in teaching your child directly.

Together this professional partnership is there to support the pupils through fully inclusive practice.
