SEND Information Report Local Offer


Welcome to our special educational needs and disability (SEND) information pages.  We hope you will enjoy reading about the variety of ways in which we are able to support your child to reach his or her full potential in order to ensure a successful transition into adult life.

We are an inclusive school and believe that all children should be valued and treated with respect. The school uses its best endeavours to ensure that the provision for all its pupils is of the highest possible standard, whilst acknowledging that we are continually striving to improve our practice. 

We recognise that pupils learn at different rates and that there are many factors affecting achievement, including ability, emotional state, age and maturity. We are particularly aware of the needs of our younger pupils, for whom maturity is a crucial factor in terms of readiness to learn.

We understand that many pupils, at some time in their school career, may experience difficulties which affect their learning, and we recognise that these may be long or short term.

At Hoylandswaine Primary School we aim to identify these needs as they arise and provide teaching and learning contexts which enable every child to achieve to his or her full potential. We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between children with SEND and their non-SEND peers and work to achieve this in variety of different ways.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) is Mrs Judi Gallagher

Our SEN Governor is Mr Mark Pawson.

The School works with due regard to the SEN Code of Practice (2014) and the Equality Act (2010).
