Special Educational Needs

As a school community, we are committed to the principles of equal opportunities for all our members, irrespective of gender, race or disability and are actively supportive of initiatives to further this. Equal opportunity is relevant to all areas and is a fundamental aspect of our school ethos.

At Goodnestone CoE Primary School, we value all children and their individual needs. Teachers plan and teach to the children’s individual needs and support where appropriate. Children develop, learn and grow at different times, not all children are the same just because they are the same age, year group. We pride ourselves on the fact that we know all our children and their individual needs and that we are able to meet these needs through excellent teaching and interventions. At times, some children may require additional support or be part of our SEND support. This is done in partnership with our parents, with parents knowing before support is provided. This process is fully communicated and explained with consent from the parents. If you are worried or concerned about your child’s learning, social or emotional needs please feel free to come and see your class teacher, our SEND leader Mr Wallace Sims and Mrs Caird, our SEND support.

SEND leader – Mr Tobin Wallace Sims.

SEND support – Mrs Anna Caird.

SEND link Governor – Mrs Jenni Humphries
