Term 4 2023
A big thank you to the children, staff and parents who engaged with Places2Be Children's Mental Health Week in the last week of term. We were so impressed by the children's knowledge, acceptance and positive outlook as well as the fun outfits they wore to 'express' themselves on the Friday, well done to everyone as we raised £117.45 for the charity (see the cerificate below). We hope that you all had an enjoyable and restful half term holiday, although we are very aware that holiday times can be challenging for families of children with SEND or mental health difficulties. We welcome the spring like signs we have begun to notice, such as snow drops, lighter evenings and some warmer days. Please continue to use this site this term to support you and your child's needs.
I will continue to post new and relevant materials linked with SEND, additional needs, mental health and SEND Wiltshire support materials. I encourage you to scroll down to the bottom of the page again as there are a number of materials from last year which continue to be useful.
As usual if you have any queries or questions about SEND at Durrington CE Junior School which can't be answered from reading our website, Facebook page or by reading our SEND Information Report, please don't hesitate to contact me at school Monday to Wednesday.

SENDCo and Senior Mental Health Lead

Someone who is 'neurodivergent' may learn, think or behave differently
than what is considered "typical" (also known as 'neurotypical').
Misunderstanding can lead to children feeling isolated,
excluded from their peers, and frustrated.
