Special Education Needs Support

Welcome to our Special Educational Needs (SEN) section of the website.At our schools we believe in providing pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all learners. In order to achieve this many steps are taken to support our pupils through their learning journey. Quality teaching is vital; however, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets. Our School is an inclusive school, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting where possible.

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are defined as: Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.

If your child has an EHCP and wishes to attend our school, we will follow the Staffordshire County Council guidance for SEND admissions. If you would like further information, please visit the Staffordshire website on

Our school Inclusion team consists of: Mrs Harris (Inclusion lead), Miss Stodd(Junior Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENDCo)), Mrs Kinson(Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENDCo)) and Mrs Throughgood(working closely with parents and children) They have dedicated time each week to support children and families. If you would like to see anyone an appointment can, be made through the school office.

As a parent you may have a child on the monitoring register or the SEN register, your first contact is always with the class teacher - they are the ones that know the needs of your child in the classroom best. However there may be times you are asked to meet with the SENCOs. This may be to look at paperwork or discus next steps, please don't worry about this, we simply want to work with you to support your child at school.
If you need to arrange a meeting with the inclusion team please contact the school office.
With thanks, 
Inclusion Team
