(Special Educational Needs and Disabilities)

From September 1st 2014 the new SEND Code of Practice came into effect.

The aim of the reforms are to join provision across education, health and care and now spans birth to 25.  Intervention should be made at the earliest possible point in a young person’s life and they and their parents should be fully involved in decisions regarding their support and outcomes.

“Teachers are responsible and accountable for the progress and development of the pupils in their class, even where pupils access support from teaching assistants or specialist staff” DfE 2014.

Brampton Cortonwood Infant School is a fully inclusive school that puts learning at the heart of everything we do to ensure children’s personal, social and learning needs are met. We passionately believe that all children should be valued equally so ensure children with SEND are fully integrated into all aspects of school life and are able to enjoy the same opportunities as their peers.

All children with an identified special educational need or disability are registered on our Inclusion Register and relevant documentation pertaining to the area of need is completed.

If your child’s teacher feels that intervention would support your child’s progress they will contact you as we believe in working partnership gives each child the greatest chance of success.

Intervention might be in the form of a number of school staff.

  • The class teaching assistant

  • The class teacher

  • A learning mentor

  • The parent support worker

  • The speech and language team

  • A professional outside school


    If you feel that your child is struggling at school in any way, or you are worried that they may have an additional need please talk to us we will do all we can to help.

    The member of staff with responsibility for SEND is Mrs T Levitt.

    If you have any enquiries or complaints regarding our SEND provision or support, please do not hesitate to contact the school on 01226 340044.
