Types of SEND at the School
At Belmont CE (Cont.) Primary School, we have experience of supporting children and young people with a wide range of needs.
We currently have children with a variety of needs in school including:
*Autistic Spectrum Disorders or Communication and Interaction Difficulties

The school provides data on the levels and types of need to the Local Authority. This is collected through the school census.
