Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs

At St Helen’s CE Primary School, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school. All staff are aware of SEND within the school and receive high quality information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils, who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We ensure that parents are fully aware and involved in the SEND process and are informed of their child’s learning at regular points throughout the year. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, Health Professionals and community organisations to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.

Accessibility Plan

The accessibility plan has been guided by Schedule 10, relating to Disability, of the Equality Act 2010 and the principles of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) as ammended by the SEN and Disability Act 2001.

As defined by the Equality Act, we understand a person with a disability to be identified as follows: 'A person who has physical or mental impairment that has a 'substantial' and 'long-term' negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities'.

Inclusion and Special Educational Needs

We are committed to be fully inclusive where all members of our school are treated fairly and equally. By working in partnership with children, families and partner agencies, we ensure that all children receive the support they need to access all aspects of school life. We respect each child as an individual and have high expectations and aspirations for all.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child and would like to speak to us at school, then please do not hesitate to contact our SENCO - Mrs C Saxton. (Please contact details below)
