Reedley Primary School is committed to meeting the Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) of all pupils in our care and ensuring that they make good progress whilst at our school. Every teacher is a teacher of every child, including those with SEND. All pupils at Reedley have the right to a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum. We aim to ensure that all pupils with SEND will achieve maximum access to this curriculum and make subsequent progress through the co-operation, understanding and planning skills shared by teachers, support staff, support agencies, parents, governors and children.

At Reedley Primary School we strive to raise the aspirations and expectations for all children with SEND, providing a focus on outcomes. We believe in providing every possible opportunity to develop the full potential of all children. All pupils are valued and their self-esteem promoted. We work in close partnership with parents/carers who play an active and valued role in their child’s education.  

We aim to provide targeted support to meet a child's individual needs. This includes working with NHS therapists and consultants, specialist teachers, Educational Psychologists and local support networks. In addition, we are fortunate to have Hannah Clarke, an independent Speech and Language Therapist, regularly visiting school. We also receive advice and guidance from specialist staff at Holly Grove School, a primary special school. 

 


The lockdown has caused huge changes in daily life for children and adults alike. In September 2020, Schools will open fully to all children within school. Below are some resources which may help to explain changes to school through simple language, pictures and social stories. These resources will help to explain new procedures, why these changes have been implemented and help to relieve anxiety related to Covid-19 in a child friendly way.
