Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

At St Alban’s Primary school we strive to ensure that there is equal opportunity for all children to be successful in their learning and to make good achievements. Unlocking potential and addressing barriers to learning is a commitment in our school. Provision for children with SEND is a matter for the whole school. Children enjoy learning in a warm, safe and caring environment with dedicated staff where every teacher is a teacher of SEND.

What is a Special Educational Need?

Children have special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.  Children have a learning difficulty if they:

Have a significant greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age; or

Have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age.

If you wish to discuss concerns about your child's progress or development, please speak to your child's class teacher in the first instance. You may also contact Mr O'Callaghan, our SENDCO and Inclusion Lead, via the school office on 01925 632128.

Mr O'Callaghan is responsible for provision for children who have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, or who are under-achieving in comparison to Age Related Expectations.
