Our Vision

Our vision for SEND children in our school is to provide a curriculum which enables achievement for all. We ensure that the educational and personal needs of children with additional needs are met, preparing them for life-long learning. Our pupils are socially included and active participants in their learning. We use pupil and parent/carer voice to positively contribute to our curriculum so that each child’s individual needs are met. We want our children to ask questions and be inspired, motivated and engage in the joy of discovery.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) at Sankey Valley St James’ Primary School

At Sankey Valley St James’ Primary School, we work together to support and care for all children and their families in our school community, including those with additional needs. National guidelines state that all schools must adhere to the ‘Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 0-25 Years’ when deciding how best to support children with SEND. The Code of Practice supports schools and parents in the process of identifying and catering for SEND children and young people from birth to 25 years of age.

The Code identifies four primary areas of SEND:

1 Communication and interaction

2 Cognition and learning

3 Social, emotional and mental health issues

4 Sensory and/or physical needs

At our school there is a step-by-step graduated model of action and intervention to support children with SEND. We ensure that all pupils in our school are treated with respect and have full access to a broad and balanced curriculum.
