Special Education Needs & Disabilities (SEND)


Our SENCO is Dawn Cockburn

Our Deputy Senco is Katherine Bones

Our objectives are to:

  • Identify and effectively act upon, at the earliest possible opportunity, barriers to learning and participation for children with SEND.
  • Ensure our ‘Universal Provision’ is effective, in immediately addressing all the needs of SEND children.
  • Ensure that every child experiences success in their learning and achieves to the highest possible standard.
  • Work in partnership with parents.
  • Work with the governing body to enable them to fulfil their statutory monitoring role with regard to the Policy Statement for SEND.
  • Work closely with external support agencies, where appropriate, to support the need of individual children.
  • Ensure that all staff have access to training and advice to support quality teaching and learning for all children.

Enquiries about an individual child’s progress should be addressed at first to the child's keyworker  since they are the person who knows your child best. 

The role of the Special Educational Needs co-ordinator (SENCO) is crucial for early year’s settings in supporting early identification and intervention for children with special educational needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) and will be a useful contact for parents/carers as well as other practitioners if they have any concerns about any aspect of a child’s development. For information regarding SEND please contact Dawn on 01625 860832
