Our Individual School Offer:

Welcome to our SEND page in which we aim to describe the support available to your child in order that they are able to reach their full potential. We hope that you will find this information useful.

Ellington Primary School is a fully inclusive school and we are very proud of our provision for all groups of learners, including those with special educational needs and disabilities. We are committed to including all children in all aspects of school life and believe that all children, regardless of their ability and behaviour are valued equally.

Children with special educational needs and disabilities are not viewed separately, but are part of the whole school approach, where children’s needs are recognised and met through varied and flexible provision. The school provides a high standard of teaching and learning and we aim to ensure that all children access a rich and diverse curriculum to enable them to make the best possible progress in school and to develop the individual learning and skills that they will need for life, both within the school and in the wider community.

We aim to provide a safe, happy and supportive environment where children thrive in all aspects of their learning and we believe that the most effective learning takes place when the children are confident, their self-esteem is high and they are happy in their learning.

We are delighted that our three consecutive outstanding Ofsted reports have praised our SEND provision highly.

Pupils thoroughly enjoy coming to this highly inclusive, caring community school, where every pupil is valued as an individual. The school is uncompromising in ensuring that the personal needs of the pupils are extremely well catered for; pupils’ welfare is at the heart of the school’s work. (Ofsted, May 2014)

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Mrs Amanda Lambert, who is supported by Mr Kevin Vardy (Headteacher) and Mrs Sandra Walker (Provision Management Officer) as part of a highly effective Provision Management Team.

Our Governor with responsibility for SEND is Mrs Christine Timson.
