SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS AND DISABILITY (SEND)
At Childer Thornton Primary School we uphold the highest commitment to supporting, challenging and nurturing all children to enable them to achieve at school. This is achieved through Quality First teaching in the classroom. We believe early intervention is vital in order to identify barriers to learning, and to provide the right support so that every pupil can achieve the best they possibly can.
In some cases it may benefit our children to access further help and support in a specific way. If there is a need for a child to have access to specific styles of learning and support, to remove a barrier to learning, this will be done through a graduated approach. This will be initiated by the class teacher, and supported by our trained SEND Team. We will endeavour to work in close partnership with parents at every juncture and strive towards achieving an excellent team around the child.
Our SEND co-ordinator is Mrs S Raynor who has achieved the National SENCO award and is working towards a Masters qualification in Inclusion with a specific focus on dyslexia.
Our deputy SEND co-ordinator is Mrs J McManus.
