Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Fleet Wood Lane Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve at school.  In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey.  However, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be required to help them to achieve their targets.


Who is the SENCo and how do I contact them?

Mrs Samantha Knox is the SENCo. She can be contacted by making an appointment either directly or through the school office on 01406 423351.

Mrs Pamela Elton is the SEND governor who can also be contacted by making an appointment through the school office.


What training has been undertaken by staff to support my child?
