Enjoy Learning, Achieve Success.


At Thwaites School, we genuinely place children and families at the very heart of everything we provide educationally, socially, morally and emotionally. We value every child at our school and that is why all children, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) thrive at Thwaites. 


For more information, please contact our SENCO Mr Jordan Emms. 

We are committed to providing for pupils with all kinds of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities who attend our school. This includes pupils who need additional support in the four following broad areas:


  • Communication and interaction
  • Social, emotional and mental health
  • Cognition and learning
  • Sensory and/or physical needs
