May 21st - Return to school support.

Many of you are in the position where you need to make a decision about sending your child back to school. Maybe some of you are thinking ahead to September too. I am collecting resources here that are designed to help you prepare for a return to school, both for your child and for your whole family unit. I will add more as time goes on, so do check back. As ever, I only post resources I trust, but we cannot vouch for the content of external sites.

If you have any questions about your child's individual needs, please use the email. 

Stay safe,

Ms Cooper.

April 1st 2020: You may need extra support for your child with SEND at this time. Here are some useful contact details for you. We can also make a referral to our school family worker if you would like 1:1 advice. Please email me and I'll help you with that.

Special Advice for Parents during the Coronavirus period


If you have any specific concerns about your child with SEND during this time, please email


We have gathered here some advice to help you talk with your children about Coronavirus itself and any associated worries. The advice comes from official sources like the World Health Organisation or through our trusted partners such as the Hertfordshire Educational Psychology Service.


We trust this advice enough to share with you but, as always, be aware that with links to external pages Chambersbury School can't be responsible for their content.


We will update this page with more advice for families in quarantine as it becomes available.

Advice from our Educational Psychologist

Special Educational Needs and Disability Support at Chambersbury


At Chambersbury, we believe that every child should be able to learn in a safe and supportive environment that allows them to realise their potential.  We provide a wide range of support based on children's individual needs. 


Occasionally, your child's class teacher might feel that your child needs a little extra help with their learning.  Please don’t worry if this happens; there are lots of highly skilled people in school and we will do all we can to make sure you and your child are happy here. We recognise that every child is a unique individual and it is our responsibility to ensure that every child is helped and encouraged to achieve to the best of their ability.


If you have any questions or queries about Special Educational Needs at any point during your child’s time at our school, please speak with your child’s class teacher first.  They will discuss any concerns with Ms Cooper (SENCo), the member of staff responsible for ensuring that your child is able to achieve to the best of their abilities.

What will happen if my child has Special Educational Needs?


First of all, your child's teacher will make any reasonable adjustments they need to in class. This might include some small group or individual learning. Lots of children need some extra help at times in school. We will talk with you if we feel that your child would benefit from some extra support.


We might also talk to some other professionals to get advice and support. We will always ask your permission.


Your child's teacher will work with you to develop an individual learning plan for them and this will be discussed at Parents' Consultation Day. 


Ms Cooper is the SENCo (Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator) and she will be available to meet with you at parents' evening to talk about how we can work with you and your child. You can make an appointment to speak with her at any other time by calling the School Office.


We will keep talking with you, and working with other professionals, to make sure we are doing everything we can to break down barriers to learning so that your child achieves all they can.
