Children with additional needs are included in the school community with access to specialist support from associated agencies including Psychological Services, Social Services, speech & language therapy, physiotherapy, health visitors, specialised teachers for hearing and visually impaired.
The school has an active Parent Staff Association who meet monthly. In addition to this there are regular meetings of parents working groups and helpers to be found around the nursery.
Families may borrow a range of resources for use in the home. These include story sacks, discovery boxes, Sauchie explorers, lending library and physical activity back packs. Staff have developed all of these to further expand opportunities for families to share in the children's learning.
