Special Educational Needs and Disability

Our Vision for Pupils Experiencing SEND

In addition to the values we hold for ALL our children we will work with pupils experiencing SEND and their families to secure the best possible outcomes. Enabling access to all areas of the curriculum through high quality classroom teaching and provision. We strive to ensure that needs, whatever area they may be in, are met with the appropriate support at the right time. This will support our children with SEND to thrive as happy, confident individuals who understand their own strengths and achievements.

 

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are defined as:

Communication and Interaction

Cognition and Learning

Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties

Sensory and/or Physical Needs

 

Our school SENCo (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) is Mrs Clark.

She has dedicated time each week to support children and families.

 

If you would like to speak with Mrs Clark or arrange a meeting, she can be contacted via the school office or on email at: senco@pilgrimscross.co.uk
