Cheadle Heath Primary School is a mainstream primary school. We believe that every pupil should be able to participate in all aspects of school life and we strive to support ALL pupils to enable them to succeed at school. Educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background.
We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND pupils. We recognise and embrace the fact that every child is different and therefore the educational needs of every child is different. We value the involvement of all members of our school community and welcome your feedback and future involvement in the review of our offer.
All Stockport Local Authority (LA) maintained schools have the same duties with regards to special educational needs and disabilities and are expected to provide support for children who have additional needs. Pupils with Special Educational Needs are supported by the LA to ensure that they make the best possible progress in school. All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

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.
