Special educational needs and disability (SEND)

A child or young person has special educational needs and disabilities if they have a learning difficulty and/or a disability that means they need special health and education support, we shorten this to SEND.

The SEND Code of Practice  and the Children and Families Act  gives guidance to health and social care, education and local authorities to make sure that children and young people with SEND are properly supported.

 

 

At Maryport Church of England Primary School, our co-ordinator for SEND is Mrs Holliday who will liaise with staff, parents and outside agencies to ensure the needs of all pupils are met.

If you are worried about the progress your child is making or have a concern about their health or development, please speak to their class teacher in the first instance.
