Hello from our SENDCo

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” 

Albert Einstein  

My name is Christine Demetriou and I oversee all Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) at Kingsmoor Academy. At Kingsmoor we pride ourselves on having an inclusive ethos throughout the school for all children. We are dedicated to narrowing the gap between pupils with special education needs and the pupils who do not. We have secure procedures that we are proud to offer at Kingsmoor Academy which support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities to ensure that they receive the best education that they are entitled to and that enables them to make progress so that they can:

  • Achieve their best
  • Become confident individuals
  • Make a successful transition into secondary school

If you have any queries or would like to discuss your child’s needs, then your child’s class teacher is still your first port of call, however, if there is something further you require then please feel free to contact me using the following information:
