Welcome to our Special Educational Needs and  Disability (SEND) information page.

Upperwood is an inclusive school and believes that all children should be valued and treated with respect. We endeavor to ensure that the provision for all pupils is of the highest possible standard. We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between children with SEND and their non - SEND peers and also those who are vulnerable at any stage of their educational life.

We want children to do their best, achieve, and be confident in their lives so they are prepared to move to their next stage in education.

The school works with due regard to the SEN Code of Practice (2014) and the Equality Act (2010).
