My name is Mrs Emma Prest. I am the Inclusion Lead at Sandhill Primary and I also teach Year 3/4.
As SENCO, I am responsible for assisting class teachers to identify those children who may be struggling at school and helping provide support to meet their needs. My role involves working with children, teachers, learning support assistants, parents and outside agencies such as the school nurse, speech therapies and educational psychologists. I monitor the provision children access to ensure needs are being met.
I am available Monday- Wednesday. If you would like to make an appointment, I can be contacted via the school office on 01226 345030.
