Mrs Tabraham

Northern Federation
Special Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo)


Usual working hours:

  • All day Monday
  • All day Wednesday
  • Thursday mornings

I work across both the infant and junior schools and I am available to offer support to children and parents regarding difficulties with learning, as well as social and emotional concerns. We have a fantastic, dedicated team across the Federation, with staff who are experienced in supporting children with a range of special educational needs including dyslexia, autism and learning difficulties. Teachers recognise that children learn through active participation and work hard to accommodate and teach all children effectively in the classroom. We understand that for children to flourish at school, we need to know and understand what they find difficult, identify it early, and put in targeted support where needed.

If you have concerns about your child’s progress or the support they receive in school, I am happy to meet parents – either informally before school on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, or by contacting me through the school office and I will book in an appointment.

You can find out more about the ways we work in the frequently asked questions below, or go to our SEND Report here.
