Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Nerrols Primary School’s approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) is to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a SEND being met within a class based setting wherever possible and where families want this to happen.

We also understand that you know your child best and you may feel that they need some additional help or support for some or all of their time at school. The documents below provide information about the types of support available to your child at Nerrols Primary School and will help you to understand who can help and how this support can be accessed.
