SEND and Inclusion
Malmesbury is an inclusive community and we are deeply committed to removing the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude individual pupils, or groups of pupils.
Equality of opportunity is a reality for all of our children within school and our dedicated Inclusion team work relentlessly to ensure that all children have the right to a fulfilling learning experience, regardless of their social background, ethnicity, academic ability or health.
At Malmesbury our Inclusion team comprises: Sarah Lenton and Glynis Kirwan (SENDCos), Roz Maslin (Deputy Headteacher, Designated Safeguarding Lead and designated person for looked after children), Ruth Allen (Learning Mentor), Shaheda Chowdhury (Senior Inclusion Practitioner/Designated Safeguarding Lead), Roushonara Begum (Parental Engagement Lead), Kerri English (Medical) and Year group Qualified First Aiders.
The Inclusion team also extends to outside agency staff including: a School Counsellor, Speech and Language Therapist, Educational Psychologist and Phoenix outreach. They not only offer direct intervention for pupils but also advice and training for all staff. This has led to a highly trained team of teaching assistants that have a wealth of experience with educating children with special needs.
This team ensures that children receive personalised interventions and pastoral care, whether it be for their social and emotional needs, special educational needs, disabilities, behaviour, mental health or medical needs.
We support teachers and parents to identify and meet the needs of every child, providing opportunities for real-life learning and working with other agencies to ensure the best possible outcomes for our pupils to be confident and independent learners.
To make a formal complaint, parents can contact the school's office directly to speak to one of our SENDCos. You can also send in your concerns via email to email@example.com
We take your concerns seriously and will make every effort to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.
