I am Sorcha Walmsley and I am the SENDCo at Allenton Community Primary School. Below is information regarding SEND in our school. Have a read or alternatively feel free to come into school and I can discuss this further!
Special Educational Needs and Disability
At some time in their school career, your child may need some help which is different to that required by most of the other children in their class. Examples of this are:
- There is a bereavement in the family and a child needs specialised help to cope with their feelings
- A child is making little progress in reading and needs a specialised programme and some 1-1 support
- The behaviour of a child becomes particularly difficult to manage and parents and school work together to help the child
- A child wears a hearing aid and his seating position in the classroom must be carefully considered in every lesson
All of the above and many more come under the umbrella term of special educational needs and disability. At Allenton Community Primary School we endeavour to provide effective support for these children and their parents.
