At Topcliffe, children with special educational needs and disabilities are supported and cared for by prioritising their additional needs. We are proud to hold the IQM Inclusive School Award. 

We can provide a wide range of support for our children alongside advice, guidance and information for parents and carers. We want to work collaboratively together so that every child has the best school experience and are safe, secure and happy during their time with us at Topcliffe.

Every child is unique and special and we personalise their learning as needed to ensure engagement and activities are tailored effectively. We welcome conversations with parents for any queries or concerns that you may have.  Please contact our SENCo team by calling the school office on 0121 675 6296 or by emailing
