Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.


Scotter Primary School aims to provide a safe, nurturing and caring environment where all children achieve their full potential and have the confidence and skills to meet the challenges of the future.


This means that we provide opportunities and support to enable all children, regardless of ethnicity, background, needs or disabilities, to reach this goal. 


With this in mind  we have aimed to answer some common questions about the support children with additional needs receive.
