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, and make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training - SEND Code of Practice

At Christ Church CE(VC) Primary School, we pride ourselves on our inclusive and caring ethos, where everyone is valued.  We believe that all children should have access to a wide range of opportunities and experiences, regardless of special educational need or disability.  

The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator in school is Mrs K Baines.  If you have any questions about SEND then please do not hesitate to come into school and speak to her.

Alternatively you can contact her by telephone on 01756 793030, or by email on [email protected]

Supporting all Learners at Christ Church School

This document sets out the ways in which we plan for every child to be included and feel success in their learning.  It describes:

Ordinarily Available Provision: this describes the types of provision and support that is employed to ensure all children are able to access learning in the classroom.  Many of these approaches are universal and help all children, whereas some of the wave 1 strategies are more targeted, depending on the needs of the class and individual children.

Additional and Personalised Provision: This includes structured, time-limited interventions which are designed to fill gaps, build confidence and increase the range of strategies that children can use in the classroom.  Some children may need more personalised, ongoing support in order to make progress and achieve their goals.

Please see the document, Supporting all Learners at Christ Church School below for details.

Each pupil is valued as an individual and great care is taken to get to know their needs so provision can be put in place to enable them to flourish.                    - SIAMS (Section 48 Church School) Inspection Report, July 2022
