SEND (SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS & DISABILITY) AND INCLUSION
Our SENCO is Mrs L Wilkinson
SEND (SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS and DISABILITY) AND INCLUSION Our children are unique individuals with their own particular strengths and needs. We follow the aspirations of the Stockport Entitlement Framework in that the needs of all learners are identified early and any required adjustments, adaptations, intervention or support are provided at the earliest opportunity. We are an ‘enabling’ school and work with parents and carers to ensure that children who may have special educational needs get the support they need to achieve their potential. Our whole school provision maps detail our graduated approach, including our comprehensive universal offer and targeted support.
‘Parents speak very positively about the quality of support which they receive, and greatly appreciate the trusting relationships which they have developed with staff who, they say, frequently “go the extra mile” to learn more about and respond appropriately to the specific needs of their children.’ Stockport Inclusion Quality Mark, November 2018
We draw on the advice of specialists to enhance our personalised approach. If appropriate, the speech therapist, educational psychologist, Sensory Support Service, Learning Support Service and Behaviour Support Service are available and may work alongside us in school.
The Stockport Entitlement Framework links closely to the Equality Act (2010) and the SEND Code of Practice. School access, resources and provision are kept under constant review. Our Accessibility Policy and Plan is available on the school website. Children with special physical needs have access to school via the main entrance and rear ramps. School should be notified of any physical conditions and symptoms in confidence as soon as possible so that specific needs can be addressed.
PACTS (Parents and Carers Together Stockport) is an independent local parent carer forum in Stockport run by parents for parents, carers, grandparents and family members who have a child/young person between the ages of 0 & 25 years with a disability or/and additional needs.
