The Trust provides education for pupils aged 3-18 years.

Now offered by NTLEC – SEND Reviews

Our SENCO Pedro Salgado has been trained by nasen (National Association of Special Educational Needs) to conduct SEND reviews of schools. These reviews aim to ensure that children and young people with SEND are visible in their school, supported in their learning and included in the decisions about the teaching they receive.

If you would like to book Pedro to conduct a review in your school, please contact ntlec@thorpe-st-andrew.norfolk.sch.uk
