Special Educational Needs

The 'Claydon Pyramid of Schools' aim to support all pupils to 'Be the best they can be!'

The welfare and progress of all individual pupils is of most importance and we strive to support each child in developing towards their full potential. We recognise that some pupils, either for a short period, or throughout their time in school require additional support due to a range of Special Educational Needs.
