Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Nightingale we are proud of our provision for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.  Our SENDCo is Miss Veronica Benjamin and she can be contacted by e-mail on vbenjamin@nightingale.hackney.sch.uk or by phone on 0208 985 4259.  
Our SEND Link Governor is David Howells.  He can be contacted via our school office on 0208 985 4259.  
You can download a copy of our SEND Policy and Information Report and our Accessibility Plan below.  Our school is fully wheelchair accessible and designed to be a calming environment for children with sensory sensitivities.  For example, every classroom has sound panelling to improve the acoustic environment.   
Admission arrangements for pupils with disabilities are co-ordinated by Hackney Education.  Parents are very welcome to come for a tour of the school and a conversation with our SENDCo prior to putting in an application through Hackney Education.
