This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan which can be found in the School Policies section of our website.
At Byerley Park Primary School we are committed to the equal inclusion of all pupils in all areas of Early Years and Primary School life. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all of our pupils and take into account the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
At Byerley Park Primary School we have appointed a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children who works closely with the SENDCO to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEND.
At Byerley Park Primary School we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.
- Mrs Rebecca Pattison is the Head Teacher and Designated Teacher for Looked After Children
- Mrs Kate Wimbury is our designated SEND Governor
- Mr Jamie Everson is our designated Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator
For information on the admission of pupils with a disability, please visit the School Admissions section of our website and view the Accessibility Plan in our School Policies section. If you would like to discuss your child’s SEN in more detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
