Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Effective from the 1st of September 2015 the government issued new guidance for working with children with Special Educational needs and disabilities. In line with this school, in conjunction with governors, have written a SEND information report, our local offer, and also a SEND policy. Our SENDCo’s are Mrs Sarah Robb and Mrs Stephen Fawdon, both are available on the school number of 01642 784735 and appointments can be made to see either of them if you would like a face to face chat. Please note Mrs Robb is currently on maternity leave and Mr Fawdon is taking up this role.
The impact of our efforts and practice with children who have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is that almost all remain in mainstream provision, with an appropriate level of support, until the end of Year 6. No child is ever turned away and we strive to adapt our practice and setting to accommodate even the most complex of needs. We work closely with additional agencies to ensure that our provision meets the needs of the pupils and our teaching is tailored appropriately. If any parent is unsure about whether their child will be able to access a mainstream school they are asked to contact the Headteacher to view the school and discuss their concerns.
Admissions of all pupils are treated equally and no SEND children are disadvantaged by the process. Preston Primary School follows Stockton Local Authority admissions policy. Please see the admissions policy for further details.
