Alexandra Primary School has a named SENDCo (Mrs B McLaughlin) and an appointed named School Governor for SEND. They ensure that the Alexandra Primary School Special Educational Needs policy works within the guidelines and inclusion policies of the Code of Practice (2014), the Local Authority and other policies current within the school.
It is the belief at Alexandra Primary School that all children have an equal right to a full and rounded education, which will enable them to become successful learners who enjoy have high aspirations, make progress and succeed. We aim to promote emotional literacy and recognise the links between SEND and wellbeing. School will endeavor to secure special educational provision for pupils for whom this is required, that is “additional to and different from” that provided within the differentiated curriculum to better respond to the four areas of need identified in the new Code of Practice (September 2014) which are as follows:
• Communication and interaction;
• Cognition and learning;
• Social, mental and emotional health;
