What have parents said about the support their children are receiving?

School and home together.  The communication between school and home is of an excellent standard, this makes him feel safe and secure. (parent / carer comment)

I have been telling my friends, who have children with Special Needs, that at Shipley I feel like I can speak to the SENCO and other staff whenever I have a question and know that what I say will be listened to by someone who understands and will help in any way they can. (parent / carer comment)
