Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Naburn Primary School values all pupils and celebrates diversity of experience, interest and achievement. All pupils need to experience praise, recognition and success, and pupils with SEND have equal entitlement to this.

This policy outlines the framework for the school to meet its duty, obligation and principal equality values to provide a high-quality education to all of its pupils, including pupils with SEND, and to do everything it can to meet the needs of pupils with SEND.

Through successful implementation of this policy, the school aims to:

  • Eliminate discrimination.
  • Promote equal opportunities.
  • Foster good relationships between pupils with SEND and pupils without SEND.Naburn Church of England Primary School SEND Policy

What if you have a concern or complaint?

We hope that we can all work together to see your child make good progress.  If, however, you have a concern or complaint about the way we have supported and helped your child, the following steps should be taken:

  1. Discuss the matter with the class teacher and/or the SENDCo.
  2. If the problem is not resolved arrange a meeting with the Headteacher. It may be appropriate for others to be involved in the meeting (e.g. the class teacher, SENDCo or Educational Psychologist). You can also speak with the SEN Governor, Anne Clarke. We will make every effort to resolve the matter in school.
  3. If the problem still remains unresolved you can meet with a representative of the Local Authority.
