Cheriton Primary School

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities


At Cheriton Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve well at school.

Quality first teaching is vital; however for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.

At Cheriton Primary School all staff take responsibility for Inclusion under the leadership of the SENCo

If you have any concerns regarding your child/children then please  talk to their class teacher in the first instance.

You may wish to  contact  Mr J Allcock the school SENCo who can be contacted on 01303 290548.

 The SEND Code of Practice

The Code of Practice for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, (SEND), was revised  by the Government in 2014.  This contains statutory guidance for schools following the changes made to the “Children and Families Act 2014”.

A “Parent/Carer Guide” to the SEN Code of Practice outlines what provision should be made by schools.  You can find this guide by clicking on the following link:
