Special Educational Needs

At Leiston we promote a culture of inclusion by identifying and supporting the needs of all of our learners at various levels. Whilst we make use of as much of our in school expertise as possible we understand and welcome the role of outside support such as County Inclusion Support Services (CISS) and local Educational Psychologists.

We encourage a transparent pedagogy and close liaison between home and school. Please find a copy of our local offer here.
