At Melbourne Junior School we are committed to equality of opportunity and the provision of the highest standard of education for all our pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).  Our SEN Information Report will give you information about how we identify SEND, and support children in our school who may have SEND.  In addition to supporting children with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, we also take the mental health and emotional well-being of all our pupils very seriously. If you would like to contact anyone to discuss SEND, or the emotional-well being of a child, please contact your child's class teacher, or the SENCO (Miss D. Martin).
