SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS & DISABILITY (SEND)
- SENCO: Mrs Tracey Vallance (Deputy Headteacher)
- SEND Governor: Mrs Jo Scarlett (Vice Chair of Governors)
We believe that the key to success is happiness, a love of learning and a school where children feel supported, respected and safe. We believe that everyone should be able to participate in all aspects of school life and aim to provide every child with the skills, knowledge, resilience and enthusiasm which will equip them to make progress and be happy in school. We recognise and embrace the fact that every child is different and that their educational needs differ. We expect every child to fulfil their potential and celebrate everyone’s uniqueness and the gifts and talents they have. For us, inclusion is about equal opportunities for all, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background.
We value the involvement of our school community and hope you find the following information helpful in understanding the types of support provided for the children at Cheadle Heath Primary, and how and when these can be accessed.

Equal Opportunities For All
We celebrate the diversity of our school community and are committed to ensuring that all our pupils have access to an equal and enjoyable learning experience. In doing so, we recognise our responsibilty towards ensuring that the staements identied in the Equalities Act (2010) ensure that all children and families are able to prosper within our school community. Our school has a strong inclusive ethos and provision has been made to accommodate children with physical, learning or behavioural difficulties. We are required by law to state whether there have been any changes to the governing board's policy in the past year, and between 2018 - 19 there have been no changes.
Parents of any potential pupil who has Special Educational Needs should contact the school so we can plan a multi agency approach to meet the needs of the child. Parents will be involved in all aspects of their child’s education. Meetings with school staff and other external professionals take place on a regular basis to review and evaluate progress and plan future targets. The school has accessible toilets, rooms dedicated to support children with additional needs and wheelchair access to all parts of the building.
