Special Educational Needs and Disability

We welcome all children, regardless of need, into our school and are proud of the ways in which we guide the children throughout their time with us.

All pupils in Northwood Primary School follow the National Curriculum through quality first teaching and are given further support through small group work and intervention should they require it as we are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students.

We feel that attendance is vitally important to enable students to achieve their potential and work alongside parents to ensure their child is able to attend school regardless of need.

If your child has a disability and you would like to know more about what we offer at Northwood Primary School please email admin@northwoodprimary.org.uk or telephone 01325267222

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Laura Robinson

Our Governor with responsibility for SEND is Nichola McCaw

Below are several key policies which directly impact upon our provision for children with SEND, and ensure that we fully comply with the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations (2014).

SEND Information Report

 

Our SEND information report is a valuable source of information for ​parents in relation to our SEND offer. This report details our ethos, procedures, curriculum accessibility and provision for SEND, including who to contact if you have a question, query or complaint.

Accessibility Plan

 

At Northwood Primary School we endeavour to make reasonable adjustments to reduce and eliminate barriers that impair access to the curriculum, thus enabling everyone to participate in the life of the school community, including pupils, staff and visitors with a disability.

 

The school aims to work closely with disabled pupils, their families and any relevant outside agencies in order to allow them to learn, achieve and participate fully in school life. The school is active in promoting positive attitudes to disable people in the school and in planning to increase access to education for all disabled pupils.
