At Penrice we welcome everyone into our community. Penrice endeavours to make available inclusive provision to ensure that all pupils, including those pupils identified with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), can enjoy and benefit from a broad and balanced education with access to the National Curriculum at an appropriate level, so that they may achieve their full potential.

Your SEND Team

Chris Knipe – SENDCo


I am the SENDCo here at Penrice. My role is to manage the provision made for students with SEND and ensure the right support and interventions are put in place to enable students with SEND make good progress. I work alongside teachers to ensure they are aware of an individual’s needs and are able to appropriately differentiate the curriculum and employ strategies to support the individual student. Please do contact me if you have any concerns or would like to know more about what we offer at Penrice.
