Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)


Sandy Leach, the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities coordinator (SENDCO) works with the management team, teachers, parental involvement worker and teaching assistants to provide appropriate intervention programs to support children with their learning. She is there to help all children in school who may have a problem with their learning, it may be a long-term issue with specific learning difficulties or just needing short-term help in a particular area.  We will liaise with other outside agencies to ensure as best as we can that a child’s needs are met.

At Ben Rhydding Primary School we see everyone as individuals valuing their unique qualities. Our school welcomes children from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. With this comes a vital requirement to meet their often diverse learning needs, ensuring that every child is equipped with the necessary skills and personal qualities to achieve the best education possible and to positively follow the life that they choose.

We believe that inclusion is about supporting all children, we believe that all children deserve the right to be fully supported and be equipped to fulfil their potential. We also do our best to ensure that all children are able to access all the activities of the school.

It is our intention that in this section of the website you will find relevant policies, useful website links and useful and essential information to enable you to be fully informed and equipped to work with us and understand our approach and philosophy to SENDCO.  If you require any further information you can speak to the office staff at school at anytime who can put you in touch with Mrs Leach or contact
