Special Educational Needs

SEND Offer at St Helen’s CE Primary School

At St Helen's CE Primary School, we value all God's children and ensure that those with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) get the support they need to make progress in a caring and fully inclusive environment. Our SEND provision provides opportunities for pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities to access a curriculum specifically tailored to their needs to give them self-confidence in order to maximise their potential and work independently. 

 The school has a named Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO), Miss Threadgold, and a named Governor responsible for SEN, Mrs Holmes.

 If you have any queries, Miss Threadgold can be contacted through the school office on 0161 7752935 or by email sthelensprimary@ldst.org.uk . Concerns about statutory assessments of special educational needs should be raised direct with local authorities.

 Any complaints about SEND, will in first instance, be dealt with by the SENDCO and/or Headteacher. If parents and carers wish to pursue the matter further, the Chairman of Governors should be approached.

 Further information about SEND at St Helen's C.E. Primary School can be found in the documents below.

 On September 1st 2014, a revised Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice was introduced. The reforms aim to implement a new approach which seeks to join up help across education, health and care, from birth to 25.
