SEND Information

At Earl Sterndale CE Primary School we seek to meet the needs of each child, by developing and reinforcing self-esteem and by encouraging a positive ‘can do’ attitude to life. To these ends, each child is helped to achieve a feeling of success in some aspect of school life and every effort made to instil a sense of pride in themselves and their work.  We are committed to equality and strive for every child to fulfil their potential no matter what their background or personal circumstances. We aim for all of our children to flourish, supporting children with special educational needs in our school by removing barriers to their learning, meeting their needs and supporting them to achieve their full potential.

Every child is entitled to quality first teaching in the classroom. If a child needs further support, our small school offers the ideal location for children with additional needs as the small class size, higher than average adult: child ratios mean that each child can receive individual support and guidance to help them achieve not just academically, but socially and emotionally.

Earl Sterndale CE Primary School is committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all children and families. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to our learners.

The SENCO at Earl Sterndale CE Primary School is Mrs Rebecca Gill.  Please do not hesitate to contact School on 01298 83263 or if you have any queries relating to Special Educational Needs / Disability.

Our school’s SEND Information Report, along with our SEND and Inclusion Policy are available at the bottom of this page, detailing our philosophy in relation to special educational needs. As a small school we are aware that the children with SEND may be easily identifiable so the information given may seem more general than specific. It is recommended that these documents are read in conjunction with the School's Accessibility Plan (also at the bottom of this page) and the Supporting Children with Medical Conditions document (please see the link below).
