Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Coupals our goal is to help children overcome barriers in their learning to fulfil their potential. We have experience of working with a range of special needs and disabilities as well as a range of external agencies. Our staff are trained in supporting pupils with a range of SEND and our team are continuing to adopt new and innovative approaches to supporting pupils with a range of needs. 

Our SENDCo, Alison Jones, oversees the support in place for SEND across the school and works proactively with parents to identify the support children will need when they join us at Coupals. Mrs Jones can be contacted by telephone at school on 01440763933 or by email: ajones@coupalsacademy.co.uk.

You will find further information, including our SEND policy, Local Offer, SEND Report and our Accessibility Plan.
