Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

and The Local Offer at Abacus

Mrs Crouch

SENCo/Deputy Head Mrs Hunter

Hello Everybody! I am writing to introduce myself as the new SENCO and Deputy Head Teacher here at Abacus.

I am absolutely delighted to have been appointed to this role and feel excited and privileged to join a school who value and support their children so well, including children with SEND.

I have worked since I qualified as a teacher in 1999 at a local Wickford Primary School teaching in all year groups. For the last 4 years as SENCo and Assistant Head Teacher. As a mum of 3 children, one with SEN, I am absolutely passionate about supporting not only children with additional needs, but their families too. I am very much looking forward to getting to know you all.

Here are our upcoming SEND events. If you would like to book on then please contact the office on 01268 571018.

There are no planned events currently booked. Keep checking back for new events in the future.
