Meet the Team
Hi I’m Miss Warbrick and I joined Park Primary straight after completing university at Manchester Metropolitan. When I am not at school, I like to travel and love snowboarding! I am always up for a challenge, recently I have completed the Yorkshire three peaks and the Tough Mudder, and I’m hoping to do a marathon one day!
Mrs L. Rigby
My name is Leanne Rigby and I am the school’s Family Support Worker. I have been in post here at Park Primary since 2015, but have worked in and around Colne for six years with families. My role in school is to provide support, advice and information to the families within our school community. I can help you with any worries that you may have in relation to your child's education, behaviour and well-being. I am also here as someone to talk to if you need it! I am married and have a son that I enjoy spending time with either at kick-boxing training or out walking our dog.
Mrs T. Graham
I’m Mrs Graham and I am married with two grown up children. I have worked at Park Primary school for twenty one years. I began working in Reception class and after eight years I moved to Rainbow, working in the nurture group. I enjoy working in Key Stage 1, watching the children develop and grow. I am going to be in Reception again this year, which I look forward to. I enjoy spending time socialising with my friends and family. I love to go walking and I am a member of the local sailing club.
Mrs S. Cross
My name is Sarah Cross. I am proud to be a governor of Park Primary School, having been a pupil myself in the 1980s. My 2 children were also both 'proud to be Park Primary'. I am passionate about supporting children who have special educational needs, and this links with my day job as a Speech and Language Therapy Assistant. I love spending time with family and friends, music, singing and ice-skating.
Mrs L. Cooke
Learning mentor/Pastoral managerHi, I’m Miss Cooke and I am the school’s Pastoral Manager. I work with children and their families, helping them to overcome any problems they might be experiencing. This may include: issues around accessing the curriculum in class, behaviour in school/at home, mental health and wellbeing and attendance. I love getting to know each individual child and making sure school is an enjoyable place for them. Outside of school, I enjoy teaching dance, socialising with friends and family and going on big walks with my puppy, Mabel.
Our Teachers provide differentiated learning opportunities for all the children within the school and provide materials and resources appropriate to the children’s interests and abilities, ensuring all children have full access to the school curriculum.
The Information report below is designed to give parents/carers an overview of our provision for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, answering key questions they may have about their child’s education and care in our school.
If you have further questions or would like to speak with someone to discuss your child’s needs in more detail, please contact 01282 863225 and ask to speak to our SENDCO Tara Warbrick, who will be happy to assist you.
A Local Offer gives children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities and their families information about what support services the local authority think will be available in their local area. Every local authority is responsible for writing a Local Offer and making sure it is available for everyone to see.
The Governors and senior management of the school meet to discuss and explore how the school will meet its SEND obligations fully. They have produced a school policy which is reviewed annually. This is available for parents/ carers to download and read at your leisure.
