Hensall Community Primary School strives to provide a happy, secure and inclusive environment in which all students thrive. We are committed to ensuring that all the children receive a curriculum relevant to their needs and ability and that wherever possible fulfils the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the National Curriculum. Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. (Article 29 from the UN convention on the rights of a child)
How do we support our SEND pupils?
Some of our pupils may need a little extra help and this is where our Special Educational and Disability (SEND) support comes in. Each child with additional needs is offered different support tailored to meet their needs. Staff at Hensall work closely with our children, their parents and, where appropriate, outside agencies, to develop each child’s individual support package.
Our SEND Information Report outlines how we identify and monitor the progress of our children with additional needs.
All North Yorkshire maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). They are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, whatever their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. The Local Authority publishes its Local Offer which provides information for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) and their parents or carers in a single place.
North Yorkshire County Council have published their local offer for children and families from 0-25. This outlines what is available for children and young people with SEND in our Local Authority.
Who is our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO)?
Our SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) is Miss Ruth Stones. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Miss Stones via the school office on 01977 661340, who will be more than happy to help.
