Maria McLelland SENCo
Merriott First School is a fully inclusive school and we are proud of the way that our school manages the needs of all children, including those with learning difficulties or those who require special educational provision. We are very proud of our award 'Somerset's Inclusive Dyslexia Friendly Status' which recognises the inclusive provision we provide for pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties. On this page you will be able to read our local offer for Special Educational Needs below.
