For any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility, and who subsequently becomes unable to provide childcare at home –  you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing. This means emailing or calling 03333 602130 by 9am the day before. For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday.  Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing. To access this provision, you must also have downloaded and completed the form that can be found here and you must bring it with you to the school when you arrive.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

This page provides information about Special Educational Needs and Disabilities support available for students attending Holcombe Grammar School.

Schools have a statutory responsibility to support all students within the school. This includes those students with special educational needs and is set out in the SEND Code of Practice (2015).  At Holcombe, we are very proud of the work of our SEND Department (‘The Haven’) and of our dedicated staff who strive to identify students with SEND, support their needs and review provision  for them on a regular basis.  The initial, and most effective, form of support for students with SEND is always to ensure the provision of quality first teaching within the classroom setting. Should you believe your child has a special educational need (ie where a pupil has a learning difficulty or disability requiring provision different from or additional to that normally available to people of the same age), you should contact the SEND Department:
