Special Educational Need and Disabilities

SEND at Tottenhall

We provide a safe, caring, stimulating environment to children and families within a diverse community. We focus on striving to ensure all pupils achieve their potential. Children are valued for their individuality and are supported to overcome any barriers to learning through a dedicated team of teachers and support staff providing appropriate interventions and strategies in partnership with parents. Staff are committed to maintaining high standards to support children with a range of complex needs. The purposeful and happy working environment results in children being enthusiastic about their learning.
All children and their individual abilities are valued at Tottenhall Infant School and we work hard to identify and start to meet the needs of any child as early as possible. This may be a Special Educational Need related to their physical, emotional and behavioural, communication and interaction or learning development. We recognise that there are some children who present differently between home and school. At Tottenhall we want to work together with parents to share information so that we get to know the whole child and can plan for the best outcome.
The SEND policy complies with the statutory requirements laid out in the SEND Code of Practice 0-25 (2014).
Nina Dean is our school SENDCo. She is the person responsible for managing the schools provision for pupils with SEND.
