Special Educational Needs

We are committed to Equality.

Every child deserves the best opportunities in life, irrespective of their needs.

Each child at Grimley and Holt is treated as an individual, and every individual has an individual path to success.  Staff work together and with parents/ carers as we strive to meet any needs that hinder them on this journey.

Children may need extra support, sometimes in the classroom with the teacher or teaching assistant (TA) or maybe through more personalised intervention.  If further support is needed then a range of outside agencies may be involved.  These might include the School Nurse, Speech and Language Therapist, Special Educational Needs Support Specialist Teacher, Behaviour Support Services or the Educational Psychologist.

We have a comprehensive SEND Policy and SEN Information Report and believe that every child is entitled to have his or her particular needs recognised and addressed.  We also provide an overview of the Graduated Response which outlines the provision that we offer all children at Grimley and Holt CE Primary School.

Mrs Esther Skelton is the SEND Coordinator and she is in school daily.  She can be contacted via the school office: office@grimleyholt.worcs.sch.uk. She is also available through Class Dojo.

Our SEND Governor is Joe Pennell, who can also be contacted through the school office.

The admission of pupils with disabilities is the same as those applied to pupils without disabilities. The school complies fully with the Equality Act 2010 and the School Admissions Code in relation to the arrangements for the admission of disabled pupils. Where the school is oversubscribed all children are admitted in accordance with the published oversubscription criteria. Where a child is disabled the school will make reasonable adjustments and provide auxiliary aids or services to ensure that no disabled child is placed at a substantial disadvantage compared to other pupils.

Parents of children with disabilities are advised to speak to us prior to admission to discuss any reasonable adjustments required so we can plan accordingly.
