At Dothill, we firmly believe that every teacher is a teacher of SEND. We have a passionate and dedicated team who are committed to working together to make our school inclusive. We understand that everyone shares the responsibility to care for and educate our most vulnerable children and set high aspirations for all children. As a team we aim to help all our children become as independent as possible but equally providing them with opportunities for support to meet their individual needs.
Our Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator is Mrs Alice Allen and she can be contacted on 01952 386870 or via the school email firstname.lastname@example.org

Areas of need:
All special educational needs and/or disabilities can be categorised into these 4 main areas.
- communication and interaction
- cognition and learning
- social, emotional and mental health
- sensory and physical
Some children with SEND may have difficulties in one or more of these areas. Please click the link below to find out more information on each of the areas of need and how children with these needs may present. You will also find information on what types of support/intervention is available in school to help support children on the SEND register.
The Telford and Wrekin Local Offer is the best place to find out any information to support your family and child with a special, educational need/disability (SEND). Along with the local offer there are a number of services locally to support parents and carers of children with SEND.

Take a look at our Dothill Sensory Room:
Our new sensory room is now up and running giving lots of children the opportunity to explore and have fun with their senses.
In our sensory room we have lots of different equipment such as light boxes, bubble light, fiddle toys, scented bags, a massage kit and much more.
The room can be used by any child when they need it with an adult to support them.
A big thank you to the parents who attended our recent coffee afternoon and thank you to Michelle from IASS who attended to share information on the IASS service.
We are in the process of arranging our summer term coffee afternoon- keep an eye out for a date! We hope that as many parents of children with SEND can attend to help support and share ideas on how we can better meet the needs of your children.
