Inclusion and equality of opportunity are very important to the staff and governors of Trinity CE Primary School. We want every child to know success and to thrive in our school, whatever their individual need or challenge.

Mr Shipley is the Special Educational Needs Coordinator, and is supported by Mrs Burrows-McGill. They welcome contact at the earliest opportunity from parents or carers who wish to discuss their child’s needs or who have concerns. Please contact the school office to request a meeting.

Teaching and engaging those pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) is part of our comprehensive drive to ensure that every child receives the care and learning they deserve.

Complaints about SEND provision

We urge parents / carers with any concerns regarding the SEND policy or the provision made for their child to speak to the academy as soon as possible and, in the first instance, to the class teacher or the SENCO. If parents / carers feel their child's needs are still not being met they should make an appointment to see the Headteacher. If concerns are still unresolved parents / carers may wish to engage with PDET’s Complaints policy procedures.

NB - any issue relating to statutory SEN assessments should be pursued with the relevant Local Authority and not via PDET’s Complaints policy.

If parents / carers require further advice / support, they should use the local Information, Advice and Support Service for Special Educational Needs and Disability SENDIASS:
