SEND- Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities.
Alderman Primary School is an inclusive rural primary school and we believe that all children should be given the best possible opportunities to reach their full potential. We provide high quality teaching, reasonable adjustments within the classroom and additional interventions to ensure the curriculum is accessible for all children.
As a school we provide support for children in the following broad areas:
Communication and interaction
Cognition and learning
Social, emotional and mental health
Sensory and physical needs
The school's information report and SEND policy provide information on what we provide for children who have additional educational needs or disabilities.
Our Inclusion Co-ordinator, Designated Teacher for Looked After Children and Emotional Wellbeing Lead (Mrs Hempsall) is responsible for overseeing the assessment and provision of all children with SEND. Mrs Hempsall works closely with teaching staff and teaching assistants to ensure that we give all children the best opportunities in school.
Mrs Hempsall currently works part time in our school (1 day a week) so it is easier to make an appointment to see her through the school office on 01945 700 275. If it is urgent and Mrs Hempsall is not in school that day, please speak to Ms. Blyth the Head teacher or your child's class teacher.
