At Penwortham Priory Academy, we ensure that the welfare needs of all our pupils are fully met.

As such, we have trained staff in school to work with pupils who may require additional support at some point in their learning journey with us.

Should you wish to know more about our In House Specialist Provision, then please contact Mrs A. Holland, our SEN Co-Ordinator, in the first instance to discuss your individual needs.
