Special Educational Needs
Lord Street Primary School considers inclusion, in all aspects of school life to be of the highest priority. If a parent is concerned about their child having a Special Educational Need, their first port of call should always be the Class Teacher - who may then involve other members of staff if appropriate.
All schools are required, by law to have a designated member of staff responsible for whole school Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENDCo) is Miss Sara Toomey -. Should you wish to meet with Miss Toomey, please make and appointment directly, or through the school office. Please be aware that she has a significant teaching commitment - so afternoon and after school appointments would be most appropriate.
The school's Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Local Offer. This details the support that the school can offer children identified as having a SEND. It also includes the accessibility plan for all people, staff, visitors and children with sensory or physical impairments.
The Special Education Needs and Disability Information Report is a statutory document required of all state maintained schools and academies. This supports the Local Offer in detailing the support that we offer at a child, parent and staff level. Further information is given about access to the curriculum, assessment, transition and admissions.
