Bury's approach to SEND

Chesham Primary School Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information

At Chesham Primary School, we  believe passionately in the importance of inclusion and equality for all children and adults, and strive to ensure that these values are at the heart of our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) practices.

We will always involve parents and children in key decisions, as well as planning and reviewing progress; we know that parents are the first educators of their child and that we need their knowledge and co-operation to plan effectively.

We know that the earlier we identify SEND and provide support, the more successful our children will be.

We are committed to providing expert support and resources for children with SEND to fulfil their individual potential.
Our starting point is to guarantee a whole -school approach to providing for the needs of children with SEND. In other words, we make sure that all staff have the knowledge and skills to support all children, including those with SEND, throughout our School.

If you have any questions regarding your child, then please get in touch with Chesham's Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Mr Roche (0161 764 4927).


In the attached document, you can read about our provision and how we support those children who have Special Educational Needs or Disabilities, and their families.
