Our SEN Information Report – which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer – provides details about how we support children and young people with Special Educational Needs in our school.
The SEN Information Report was reviewed and updated on September 8th 2021.
At Nettlesworth Primary we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.
Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEND.
At Nettlesworth we have an Early Help Advisor who works closely with the SENDCO/MAGT/Inclusion Co-ordinator. Our SENDCO is also the Designated Teacher for Looked After Children who works closely with teachers to ensure all in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEND.
This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan.
- Mrs Donna Lee is The Head Teacher
- Mrs Donna Lee is our designated Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator. She also has the responsibility for MAGT and Inclusion
- Mrs Diana Barclay is our designated SEND Governor
They can all be contacted via our website on the contact us button or by phone on 0191 3710444
