Sheriff Hutton Primary School is an inclusive school, committed to meeting the physical, social, emotional and academic needs of all children.
We aim to provide the necessary care, support and guidance to ensure all children achieve success, develop confidence, maintain high self-esteem and are able to make positive contributions to the school and wider community.
We endeavour to respond sensitively, quickly and appropriately to any child who may need special educational provision and all children are valued equally. The school aims to cater for all children within the classroom, including those who may require additional support.
A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her.
A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:
For children aged two or more, special educational provision is educational or training provision that is additional to or different from that made generally for other children or young people of the same age by mainstream schools, maintained nursery schools, mainstream post-16 institutions or by relevant early years providers.
We value the importance of good communication between parents/carers, school and outside agencies therefore parents/carers are consulted at all times through informal discussions with the class teacher, and more formal regular review meetings.
Please read the Local Authority and School Offer for pupils with SEND which outlines SEN provision at Sheriff Hutton Primary School. This information helps to explain how we meet the needs of all children in our school.
