Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Inclusion

SEND intent

At Escrick primary school we believe that every pupil has a right to receive a high-quality ambitious education regardless of need or disability. All children with Special Educational Needs must have their needs recognised and assessed, through a whole-school approach, with appropriate and timely intervention put in place through an assess, plan, do, review cycle.

We value each child and encourage them to achieve the best possible outcomes enabling them to be confident and successful as they continue their lifelong learning. We recognise the importance of good mental health for all our children and utilise strategies and support resources to develop this. Having close partnership with parents and external agencies helps children to learn and develop. We believe that it is vital that our pupils are equipped with the tools needed to become independent learners who will flourish both in and out of the classroom.

Through our high-quality planning, teaching and provision we:


  • Pride ourselves on early identification and intervention for SEND to ensure that progress and opportunities are maximized.
  • Ensure that all children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum which is differentiated to enable children to understand the relevance and purpose of learning.
  • Provide an accessible learning environment which is tailored to the individual needs of all pupils.
  • Develop children’s independence and life skills.
  • Regularly monitor the attendance and progress of children with SEND, using a child-centered approach.
  • Provide good quality and relevant training for all staff members supporting children with SEND.
  • Work collaboratively with parents and carers.
  • Work closely with external agencies and other professionals to hone and develop our provision for children with SEND.
