Roche Pebbles has a policy on Special Educational Needs and would not exclude any child. We work with parents, Health Visitors and other relevant agencies, i.e. Social Workers, to provide an on-going progression of social and educational development.
All policies, including that for Special Educational Needs, are available for staff and parents to read and we encourage this to be done, please ask a member of staff for more details.
