Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) at Grappenhall Heys Community Primary School

At Grappenhall Heys, we work together to support and care for all children and their families in our school community, including those with additional needs.

National guidelines state that all schools must adhere to the ‘Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 0-25 Years’ (June 2014) when deciding how best to support children with SEND.  The Code of Practice supports schools and parents in the process of identifying and catering for SEND children and young people from birth to 25 years of age.

The Code identifies four primary areas of SEND:

 1          Communication and interaction

2          Cognition and learning

3          Social, emotional and mental health issues

4          Sensory and/or physical needs

 At Grappenhall Heys, there is a step-by-step graduated model of action and intervention to support children with SEND. We ensure that all pupils  in our school are treated with respect and have full access to a broad and balanced curriculum.
