SEND

SENDCo and Deputy Head

Mrs Celine Keleher

 

At St George’s CE Primary School we will support your child to achieve the best they can.

 

At times, children may need extra help with their learning and development and this page will show you the range of support that is available here at St George’s.

 

As always, we will work with parents, carers and other agencies, as necessary, to ensure your child has access to the educational provision required to meet their needs.

 

The first point of contact is your child’s class teacher. Your next point of contact is the SENDCo, Mrs Keleher. Appointments can be made by contacting the school office or by telephoning 0161 480 8657.

We are happy to speak to prospective parents and arrange a tour of the school. Please contact the School Office to arrange an appointment. You can email the head teacher at the following address:

office@st-georges.stockport.sch.uk

 

You can also contact Parent Partnership on 0161 286 4230.

 

 What is SEND?

 ‘A child or young person has SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

 

A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:

(a) have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or

(b) have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.’

(SEND Code of Practice 2014)

This is a broad definition covering all children and young people from 0-25 years of age.

 

The Code of Practice 2014 identifies 4 main areas of need:

1. Communication and Interaction

2. Cognition and Learning

3. Social, Mental and Emotional health

4. Sensory and/ or Physical Needs

From September 2014 all schools are required to provide information to parents about how they will support children and their families if a child is deemed to have special educational needs. The provision and support offered at St George's CE Primary School is constantly evolving and adapting to the needs of its pupils. As a result the information on these pages concerning SEND will be reviewed and updated regularly.

For further information please read the school SEND Policy below.
