Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Hunton CE Primary School, we pride ourselves on providing an inclusive, nurturing environment, where all children are valued, respected and welcomed to the school, whatever their additional educational need. We will support their learning and wellbeing, enable them to take a full and active part in all school activities and support them to thrive and achieve their full potential.
The staff at Hunton recognise that all children in their care are unique. We take time to make sure we know all our children well and strive to ensure that the needs of each individual child are met. Every child has access to a broad and balanced curriculum, enriched with a variety of hands on learning activities in our beautiful school grounds and surrounding area.
We use a graduated response to meet the needs of our pupils, founded on the principle of high quality, inclusive classroom teaching as the foundation of our support for every child. To achieve this, we use the mainstream core standards to guide the planning of our provision in each class.
More information about the support that we offer for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can be found in our SEND policy. This document is regularly updated and sets out the school’s systems for identification, assessment, supporting, monitoring, reviewing and evaluating provision for pupils with SEND.
Our policy fully supports the 2014 SEND Code of Practice; Inclusive Schooling of Children with Special Education Needs and the Disability Rights Code of Practice for Schools.
Any concerns you may have about your child should be shared with your child’s class teacher, as they will usually know your child best. The class teacher may then seek advice and support from the school’s Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo).
The SENDCo at Hunton CE Primary School is Mrs Wichall. She is usually in school on Tuesdays. You can contact Mrs Wichall via the school office or on the contact us page of the website.
