SEND Information

SENDCO: Mrs L Sharkey


In the academic year 2020-2021, there are 17 pupils on the SEND register.

Our school takes a graduated approach to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.


The graduated approach means that provision for a child with a SEND is a continuum between whole class QFT (Quality First Teaching) at the one end and highly personalised teaching at the other.


All children have access to quality first teaching, but where a potential SEND has been identified, the approach to your child’s teaching and learning becomes increasingly personalised as our understanding of your child and his/her need grows. Thus, support becomes more targeted as outlined in the flow diagram link below:

Within each step of this continuum, a cycle of assessing, planning, doing and reviewing is ongoing.


We do not assume that a child will always remain on a particular step. They could move up or down the continuum depending on what level of support is best for them at the time. All provision is subject to regular review and parents/carers are invited and expected to contribute to this review process by attending meetings, talking to your child’s class teacher and SENCo and ensuring school are kept informed of any changes to your child’s needs.
