Giffards is in the enviable position of having a large number of classroom assistants, employed throughout the school, allowing us an excellent adult to pupil ratio. Expertise is provided by visiting part time staff to assist with specialised aspects of the curriculum such as P.E., music, dance etc. We also have access to counsellors and other professionals, if you feel your child could benefit from meeting with them please do let the Inclusion Team know.

Help is also available from visiting specialists such as physiotherapists, speech therapists etc.
