Some frequently asked questions by Parents/Carers:
 
What does SEND mean ?
 
The term SEND (Special Educational Needs or Disability) describes the needs of children who have a difficulty or disability which makes learning more challenging for them than for other children of the same age. This could range from a sensory or communication difficulty; a visual, auditory or physical impairment; an emotional, mental health or medical condition or a specific learning difficulty, such as Dyslexia.
 
Stamford Hill has experience and support available for children with difficulties in all of these areas. We are committed to try to ensure that all children, regardless of their needs and abilities can be included and welcomed in our school.
