Our intent for SEND and Inclusion at ASSR

All Saints’ and St Richard’s Primary is a fully inclusive school who ensures that all pupils achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally, physically and educationally.  

Our SEN information report lets you understand how we support pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.  

We consult with pupils and their families on our local offer by meeting with parents regularly through SEN reviews, parents’ evenings and informal meetings, these can be prompted by parents, teachers or external professionals. 

Children are identified as having a special educational need when their level of progress has become a cause for concern.  Interventions are quickly put in place to cater for individual needs. 

If your child is placed on the SEN register at school you will be contacted and a meeting arranged between you and your child’s class teacher. At this meeting your views about your child’s education, strengths, additional needs and what you feel works best for them will be discussed and included in the plan as will your child’s views. This is so you know exactly what support your child will be receiving in school and how long for, also how we expect this support to help them.  

The other people / agencies and teams providing services to children with a special educational need / disability in school include:

  • Educational Psychologist 
  • Speech and Language Team
  • Virtual Schools services
  • Children’s Services
  • Public Health (School nurse)
  • CAMHs
  • CLASS and CLASS+
  • GPs
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Gypsy, Roma and Traveller provision

We will work in partnership with other education providers to ensure that pupils make a successful transition to the next stages of their learning, through careful and coordinated planning of the transition.  We provide scheduled transition days to the local secondary school and further visits for vulnerable children, we liaise with staff, including form teachers and SENCOs of the transitional schools.  Should children need to transfer to specialist provision; a transition plan will be put in place.  



Behaviour and anti-bullying policies are regularly reviewed with a focus on how they affect pupils’ with special educational needs or disabilities.

Other useful documents such as our Special Educational Needs and Inclusion Policy are also available in the policies section of the website.  

The school’s self-evaluation process will look at teaching and learning for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.  

All school-related activities are evaluated in terms of their benefit to the learning and inclusion of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.
