Pupils with an identified Special Educational Need and/or Disability (SEND) at Broad Square Primary School are fully included in all aspects of school life and are given appropriate support to access the curriculum to reach their full potential and succeed in life, in accordance with The National Curriculum in England Key Stages 1 and 2 framework, The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 and Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0 – 25 years 2015.
Any learner may have special educational needs at some point during their time in school and therefore a wide variety of strategies will be used to meet the needs as they are identified. Parents and carers are supported in seeking advice and implementing strategies they need to create an environment to fulfil their child’s potential, both in school and at home.
If you are concerned about your child or require support with your child's needs, please contact Miss. Jones or Miss Buckley (EYFS, and Year 1) to arrange a meeting.
