Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Overton CE Primary School is a mainstream school, and we work hard to meet the needs of all our children as an inclusive school. We have a very strong ethos that values every child as an individual. We have an expectation that every member of staff will encourage children in their learning choices, and that no ceiling of opportunity will prevent children from achieving and surprising us.  Please click here for the document “Including Everyone” to find our SEND Information Report detailing more about our provision.
