Federation of Earlswood Schools

A Place to Learn Together

We offer Nursery Provision to Year 6


At the Federation of Earlswood Schools, all pupils are welcome and valued regardless of their starting points.  The term 'Special Educational Needs' refers to children who experience barriers to learning under the categories of Cognition and Learning; Social, Emotional and Mental Health; Sensory and Physical; Communication and Interaction.


The schools have a dedicated, highly experienced non-class based SEND team who ensure that the needs of these pupils are being met through high quality teaching in the classroom, additional intervention and specialist support.  They work closely with Surrey County Council and the NHS to access support from link Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapist, Educational Psychologists and more.


Jane Burgess leads on SEND at the Junior school, while Elaine Crawford oversees the Infant school, working 3 days per week each. On the days that they are not at each site, Joanna Jackson is the SEND Leader. Both Jane and Elaine have a focus on improving the quality of provision for pupils with SEND in the classrooms, working with outside agencies and ensuring children are well supported with transitions. Joanna's role focusses on the additional support that pupils receive through interventions and specialist input, working closely with the support staff at the school.


Joanna is one of the school's Senior Mental Health Leads alongside Alice Calvert.


Our aim is to ensure that all pupils, including those with SEND, achieve their dreams and aspirations and we go over and above to ensure that they can access all aspects of the curriculum to give them the best possible start in life.

At the Federation of Earlswood Schools we are supported by Surrey County Council to ensure that all pupils are able to progress well and meet their full potential. This support enables us to be as inclusive as possible and to aim to meet the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs  and /or disabilities in a mainstream setting.
