Our SENDCo

Mr M Smith is our school SENDCo.  Please feel free to contact him via the school office to discuss any queries you have about your child.

Children with Special Education Needs and/or Disbilities

Our commitment to all children underpins our work, but we recognise that we have additional responsibilities for children who have been identified as having Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND).

Our SEND information document (The Local Offer - see the link below) aims to provide useful information for parents about how SEND is approached at this school.

Admissions into school for children with SEND should be through the usual processes, but there is lots of additional support that can be made availble across different agencies and services. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss the best way forward for your child. 

As a school we will make any reasonable adjustments to ensure that children's needs can be met.  We are a single storey building with wide access available for mobility vehicles.  We have an accessible toilet/changing area and a shower area.  In the main hall, we have an induction loop to assist those with a hearing impairment.  Within the curriculum, we have an inclusive approach so that every child gets supported to achieve their potential - sometimes this requires specialised equipment, adaptions or suppor, but this is always discussed in an open, solution-focussed and positive partnership. 

Parents/carers are always welcome and encouraged to come and discuss their child's progress and/or development with their class teacher, the School's Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (Mr M Smith) or the Headteacher (Mrs R Wakefield)

If you have a complaint about Special Educational Needs and Disabilities please contact school directly. Our complaints procedure is located in the Policy section of this website.  You can alternatively contact the Local Authority Special Educational Needs Service Manager.  Email: sen@nelincs.gov.uk  Telephone: 01472 323236

SEND Reforms

The SEND reforms placed a statutory requirement on schools from September 2014 to make information available to parents about how the school supports children and young people with SEN.
