SEND - Special Educational Needs and Disabilites
At Lea and Garsdon CE Primary School, in line with the 2014 Special Educational Needs Code of Practice, we believe every child has the right to flourish.
- It is our aim to provide high quality teaching for all, offering further support and resources to those who need it.
- We believe that every child is unique and their voice and that of their parents and carers needs to be heard.
- Our Teachers and Teaching Assistants have a wealth of experience, knowledge and skills covering a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
- There is a qualified SENDCo, (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator), Mrs Rachel Woods and a qualified ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant), Miss Alison Withers. We also have a governor responsible for the overseeing of SEND provision throughout the school; Mrs Ann Suter.
SEN support in school takes a graduated approach which will mean some children’s needs will be met through “high quality teaching ” or interventions available to all children, whereas some children may need more specific intervention programmes and support. These children will have a support plan put in place with outcomes, provision and expectations agreed by you, your child and your child’s class teacher.
Some children may need a higher level of support through and Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) which is granted by the Local Authority. Our school Graduated Response document can be found in the document below.

In line with our core value of inclusion, we aim for every pupil to achieve the most successful individual outcomes educationally, socially, in their personal life and within their local community, and for their unique needs to be recognised and met as early as possible. Our Accessibility Plan intends to achieve this vision by empowering these children and young people to achieve all that they can.
