The school prides itself in its ability to offer and successfully deliver a full curriculum that is inclusive to all children, irrespective of need. The SEND team work closely with all of the teaching staff and, as a result, are able to support children with a wide range of academic, physical and social needs. This may be in the form of classroom based support or withdrawn support, often in small group or one-to-one sessions using resources from within the school and from the support services within the Authority.
The school maintains very close working relationships with children, staff, parents and other agencies. Indeed, partnership with parents is of the utmost importance.
We encourage you to speak to your child’s class teacher or a member of the Special Education Needs and Disability Team if you have any questions or concerns. You can contact us via school telephone 0191 4151510, or by email, our addresses are in the SEND information report or SEND Policy.

Key SEND Policies
Together for Children SEND Ranges
The ranges will provide a framework for all professionals working with the pupil and will give clarity for parents and families in terms of what their child’s needs are and what they will receive to support this. They have been made using all agencies in Sunderland and with additional outside advice so it will hopefully mean children across the authority will receive consistent and targeted support to suit their needs.
We place our children into the correct “range” through observation and assessment. You are welcome to discuss this with your child’s class teacher or a member of the SEND team at your next review meeting, or before by making an appointment.
COVID 19 Additional Support
With the recent Coronavirus outbreak, we understand that some children with SEN and their parents may need some additional support. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or a member of the SEND Team. There is also some handy ideas and information on the NSPCC website.
