SEND, Inclusion and Accessibility

SEND, Inclusion and Accessibility

At the Tynings Primary School, we aim for all our children to achieve their full potential and make progress. All pupils have equality of access to the curriculum, with all staff responding to children’s diverse learning needs and overcoming potential barriers to learning.  We strongly believe that every teacher is a teacher of every child, including those with SEND.

Across the school, some children need extra support and/ or challenge to consolidate their learning and to enable them to access the curriculum at an appropriate level. The person who oversees this process is Mrs Angela Berger, our school SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator). Mrs Berger can be contacted on 01454 866525 or [email protected]

If you have concerns about your child, please contact your child's class teacher in the first instance. They will be able to offer support and guidance, and talk you through the next steps available to you and your child.

Families on the Network will receive a SEND registration card (formally known as the pink card). This may allow carers free or reduced cost entry to some attractions, activities and events. When you visit places show your registration card to the organisation and ask if they have concessions for carers. Click here if you would like to find out more.
