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) is Mrs Helene Sutton (Working days Monday -Wednesday). Please phone on 01454 866522 or e-mail the school office using email@example.com if you wish to make an appointment to speak to Mrs Sutton.
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 find more information about our SEND offer at the bottom of this page.
Admission arrangements for SEND children with an Education & Health Care Plan (EHCP)
Pupils who arrive at school with an EHC plan follow different admission procedures. If parents/carers name Little Stoke as their preference, then a consultation is received by the school from South Gloucestershire Council. During this time, the EHC plan is looked at carefully by school to ensure that we are able to meet the needs of the pupil. Close liaison with families and previous settings occur so that the best decision for the pupil can be made.
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 at the bottom of this page.
