Collis Primary School is committed to improving outcomes and having high expectations for all children who are disadvantaged or have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.  We adapt the curriculum, where needed, to ensure pupils make rapid progress and achieve the best possible outcomes to enable them to:


  • Become increasingly fluent in their learning
  • Develop independence for adulthood; and
  • Build resilience for life

We understand that for parents of children with SEND, there can be many difficult paths to navigate.  Sometimes it can be hard to know or find the answers, but we strive to ensure that there is always somebody here to talk through your worries, concerns or queries with.‚Äč

Our Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities Coordinator is Susie Lord.
