Special Educational Needs

Lakes Primary provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all children. The National Curriculum is our starting point for planning that meets the specific needs of individuals and groups of children. When planning, teachers set suitable learning challenges and respond to children’s diverse learning needs. Every teacher is responsible for every child in their class, including those with SEN. Some children have barriers to learning that mean they have special needs and disabilities and require particular action by the school. Teachers take account of these requirements and make provision to support individuals or groups of children and thus enable them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities. Such children may need additional help or different help from that given to other children of the same age.

Parents can discuss any concerns relating to SEND with our school SENCo, Mrs Handley, via the school office Tel. 01642 485894.

Have a look at the ‘Local Offer’ website of information and services for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their families living in Redcar and Cleveland.
