At St Anne’s C Of E (A) Primary School we believe that all children should be valued equally within a climate of support.

All children may experience difficulties with their learning at some stage in their educational career. Special Education Needs may arise in any pupil at any intellectual level and may stem from learning, communication, behavioural, emotional, social and physical problems.

We aim to provide every child with access to a broad and balanced education. This includes delivering the National Curriculum in line with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.

The fundamental principles of the school policy are that all children have the right to a broad and balanced curriculum. We will value individual children’s strengths and try to help them develop to their full potential. We will try to promote life-long learning.

Our aims to achieve this are:

  • To provide a differentiated curriculum appropriate to the individual’s needs and ability
  • To undertake identification of all pupils requiring SEN provision as early as possible in their school career
  • To enable SEN pupils to take as fully part as possible in all school activities
  • To ensure that parents of SEN pupils are kept fully informed of their child’s progress and attainment
  • To ensure that SEN pupils are involved, where practicable, in decisions affecting their future SEN position
  • To ensure vulnerable pupils ie. pupils who are looked after, have free school dinners, Gypsy Roma Travellers, pupils who are under social care or have health issues or persistent absentees receive the support needed to achieve.

Our Inclusion team at St Anne's:

Miss Stephanie Robinson is our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo)

Mr Tony Gray is our named Governor for SEND 

Your child's class teacher will remain responsible for supporting and teaching your child effectively in order to meet their needs. They will seek and act upon advice from our school SENCO as they feel appropriate. It is always best to contact your child's class teacher if you wish to discuss the support they are being given in school. In the event that more information is required, your child's class teacher may recommend making an appointment to speak with Miss Robinson

Here you can find our SEND Policy which outlines how we can support pupils with additional needs and our SEND Information report which can also be accessed on the Nottinghamshire Local Offer Website.

The SEND Local Offer aims to bring together helpful and useful information for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their families. It is a comprehensive guide to services and support all in one place. Please watch the video to find out more.
