Our School SEN coordinator is Miss Palmer. She can be contacted via the school office on 01442 408964.
At Micklem, it is our aim to support every child to reach their full potential and to be the best that they can be. Every child learns in different ways and, from time to time, may have barriers which prevent them from making the progress which we expect.
At these times, we will explore different ways to support your child in ensuring that they get the most out of their time at school. Your child's class teacher will speak to you if they feel that they need a little more help with some aspects of learning. As a school, we have been awarded the 'Inclusion Quality Mark' which means that we have excellent systems in place to ensure that this works effectively and smoothly.
If you have any questions, please speak to your child's teacher or Miss Palmer, our SENDCO, as they will be happy to discuss the support that your child is receiving. Below is a range of further information which may be useful to you as well as links to some of the external services from which our school may receive support. We hope that we would be able to resolve any issues you may have with regards to your child's special education needs. However if you continue to be dissatisfied with our SEND provision, please refer to our Complaints Policy for details on how to complain by using the link below to our school policies.

Pupils who have disabilities are supported in accordance with our Inclusion policy and our Equalities Policy and Accessibility Plan, both of which can be found in this area of our website. All admissions, including those of pupils who have disabilities are handled by Hertfordshire County Council and, as such are subject to their procedure and policy.
As outlined in our Equalities Policy and Accessibility Plan document, we make every effort to ensure that all pupils, regardless of need or disability, are able to access our school curriculum on a fair basis. Where needed, the school will make reasonable adjustments to ensure that all pupils are able to attend and access without being treated less favourably than others. Examples of such adjustments can be found in our SEN Information document. If you require further information, please contact the school's SENCO.
At times, we may ask other agencies to provide support and advice in working with some of our children to overcome theirs barriers to learning. This may be through support for staff, close work with the children or engagement with families to ensure that the curriculum is fully accessible to all.
