Who is responsible for SEND provision in school?
At Adlington Primary School Miss Farnworth is the SENCo and can be contacted directly via the e-mail address below or by calling the school.
What can Adlington Primary School offer my child?
At Adlington Primary School we believe that all of our children deserve the highest quality education and opportunities and all of our teachers and support staff have regular training to ensure that they provide excellent support to our children with SEND. We also work in partnership with a number of specialists to provide expert support.
We have our own speech and language therapist who works in school alongside our school staff, providing specialist speech and language support for our children. We also employ a specialist inclusion teacher who provides specialist support for all of our children with SEND. Helen our specialist play therapist frequently supports some of our children with SEND.
Mrs Birkin, our Headteacher, is a qualified specialist teacher with a specialism in dyslexia. She holds the qualifications necessary to undertake specialist assessments and diagnose dyslexia.
We also work with other specialists from across the authority, ensuring the highest standard of provision and support for all of our children who have special needs.
What do I do if I am concerned about my child's progress?
We have an open door policy so please do make contact with your child's class teacher or directly with a SENCO to share your concerns. You will be kept up to date about your child's progress throughout the year via parents evenings, parent drop-in's and conversations with your child's class teacher. We also encourage our families to approach us if they have any concerns about their child at any time and are proud of the excellent home-school relationships that we have with our families.
We hold regular coffee mornings for our families who have children with SEND and this enables them to come together and have time to chat with our SENCO's.
We follow a graduated response to any concerns raised by either parent, child or class teacher.
