Moorlands Primary School works to embed an inclusive ethos to allow every pupil to achieve their potential. To do this, the school takes progressive steps to support individual needs (see Special Educational Needs flowchart).
Firstly, we believe high quality teaching is vital and Moorlands Primary School has an in-depth system to support staff to deliver this and monitor progress of all pupils; however, for some children, there may be times when further additional support is needed.
To discuss this further, please speak to Class Teachers or the Moorlands SENCo is available at the SEN workshop every Monday 2:30-3pm.

At different times in their school career, a child or young person may have a special educational need. The Code of Practice (CoP) September 2015 0 -25 defines SEND as:
“A child or young person may have SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:
1. have a significant greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age: or
2. have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools mainstream post – 16 institutions.”
