Hello, my name is Mrs Knight
I have the responsibility of co-ordinating the provision made for individual children with: Special Educational Needs, Social and Emotional Needs and English as an Additional Language.
I also work as part of the Senior Leadership Team. This means that I work closely with all staff in school, parents, outside agencies and colleagues throughout the city and across the schools in the University of Chichester Academy Trust.

Our Pastoral Support Team are here to support the children in overcoming any difficulties that are getting in the way of their learning. The support each child gets will depend on their individual needs.
