Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Stockton Primary School is proud to be an inclusive school.

Our Special Educational Need co-ordinator is Mrs McCoach and can be contacted on 01926 812483 or stocktonprimary@stowevalley.com

In these documents you can read about our provision and how we support those children who have Special Educational Needs or Disabilities and their families.

Stockton prides itself on being an inclusive school which is committed to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs.  Th SENDCO and staff are trained in identifying additional needs and planning provision to ensure these needs are met.   Special Educational Needs are predominantly met by adapted teaching which is delivered in the classroom by the class teacher.  Support may be given in the form of working alongside one of our highly skilled teaching assistants.  Pupils may also receive targeted support which takes the form of bespoke intervention aimed to address a specific need i.e. language for thinking to address a need with receptive and expressive language.

Children receiving targeted support will be placed on the Special Needs Register and an Independent Learning Plan will be created for them.  Parents will be consulted and informed at all stages along this journey.  Progress is monitored carefully and school staff liase with outside agencies such as Speech and Language therapists, Educational Psychologists and other professionals.

As a school we have a close working relationship with SENDSUPPORTED (a company of SEND expertise) and we deploy the services of a Specialist Teacher to carry out assessments and advise.  We also work with the company director who is an expert in supporting pupils with ASC.

Staff receive regular training and updates regarding the area of SEND and we are currently prioritising SEND within our development plan.

Mrs McCoach and Mrs Bedgood work very closely in this area - please contact either directly if you have concerns regarding your child and possible additional needs.

You can access our Provision Map here which details the interventions etc. that we currently run.  This is an ever evolving picture as we train staff to deliver provision to meet the needs of our pupils
