Holywell Primary and Nursery School

 

Welcome to our SEND page

 

Here you will find lots of information about supporting children with Special Educational Needs.

 

At Holywell Primary School, we are all here to help!

We operate an open door policy and you are welcome to come into school to discuss any concerns or questions you might have about your child. Our school has a SENDCO (Special Education Needs and Disability Coordinator):

My name is Miss Evans. I work with children, teachers, parents/ carers and agencies to ensure that our pupil’s needs are met. If you would like to contact me, you can arrange a meeting through the school office or email me on sen@holywell.worcs.sch.uk

You can read the SEND Code of Practice (January 2015) by clicking the link below.

Local Authorities must publish a local offer, setting out in one place, information about provision that is available for children and young people in their area who have special educational needs (SEN) or disability. The local offer covers: Support available to all children and young people with SEN or disability from universal services such as early years settings, schools and colleges; Targeted services for children and young people with SEN or disability who require additional short term support over and above that provided routinely as part of universal services; Specialist services for children and young people with SEN or disability.
