Special Educational Needs – Who can help?
We provide a range of support types for children with additional learning needs. Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDo)– Sue Anstey – is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays to meet with you. Please contact the office on 01454866522 to arrange a meeting.
We have pupils at Little Stoke with a wide range of learning needs and we are able to support you with planning to get the support for them right. If you have any concerns about how your child learns or feel that they need more specific support or challenge just get in contact, we will meet and work with you to resolve any issues. Please read the Parent Guide below (this details what the school can offer you and your child) and then look at the South Gloucestershire Local offer document for the wider picture. We look forward to hearing from you.

Admission arrangements for SEND children with an Education & Health Care Plan (EHCP)
Children with statements of SEN or with EHC plans that name the school on the statement or EHC plan are required to be admitted to school. Close liaison takes place with parents/carers and previous educational settings if appropriate.
Our approach to Special Educational Needs
At Little Stoke Primary School we recognise the individuality of pupils’ social and academic needs. Many pupils will require specific intervention for a short period of time, whereas others may require more substantive longer-term support. All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:
- Achieve their best
- Become confident individuals living fulfilling lives
- Make a successful transition into adulthood
The policy for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) is available to all parents through the school website. The following documents guide our approach to supporting pupils with special educational needs.
