SEND provision at Oakmeadow Primary School

At Oakmeadow CE Primary & Nursery School we believe that:

  • all children are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum which is differentiated to meet individual needs.
  • all children should be valued regardless of their abilities or difficulties.
  • all teachers are teachers of children with SEN.
  • all children can be enabled to fulfil their potential through effective teaching and learning, support and encouragement.
  • effective assessment and provision for children with SEN will be achieved in partnership with parents/carers, children, the Local Education Authority and any relevant outside agencies 

The SEND section of this website contains information about SEN and some of the many ways in which we seek to fulfil our responsibilities to those children who may need support during their time with us.

What do we mean by the term Special Educational Needs?

Definition of Special Educational Needs from the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice: for 0-25 years (2014)

A child or young person has SEN 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:

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

•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.

Mrs Morris is our co-ordinator for SEND. She can be contacted via emailing the main school office or by ringing the school directly on 01743 875020.
