Miss Johnstone (Y1) and Mrs Richardson (Y5) are our Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinators at Finchale Primary. They also support our Mental Health Champion, Dr. Sandra Whitton. Miss Johnstone is responsible for Special Educational Needs (SEN) for children in Reception through to February in Y3, whilst Mrs. Richardson is responsible for children from February in Y3 through to the end of Year 6. They are supported in their roles by Dr. Sandra Whitton, Head Teacher and Mental Health Lead, who is a highly experienced and fully trained SENCO herself.
Hello, I am Dr. Sandra Whitton and as well as being the Head Teacher at Finchale, I am also the Mental Health Champion for the School and I aim to signpost additional help and resources for any children who may present with issues such as stress, anxiety and low mood.
