Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEN/D)

Our Special Education Needs Co-ordinator is Rebecca Harris.

At our schools we believe in providing pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all learners. In order to achieve this many steps are taken to support our pupils through their learning journey. Quality teaching is vital; however for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets. Our School is an inclusive school, with the needs of pupils' with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

 

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are defined as:

Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.

 

If your child has an EHCP and wishes to attend our school, we will follow the Staffordshire County Council guidance for SEND admissions. If you would like further information please visit the Staffordshire website on https://www.staffordshirecares.info/send-reforms/Home.aspx

 

Our school Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs Harris. Miss Deakin, Miss Phillips and Mrs Brookes are also members of the inclusion team and they work closely with parents and children. They have dedicated time each week to support children and families. If you would like to see anyone an appointment can be made through the school office.
