Welcome to our Special Educational Needs and Disability web page.

If you have any questions relating to SEND provision, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

If you would like to know more about how your child is supported in school, in the first instance, we recommend the first point of contact is your child’s class teacher.

If after these discussions, it is felt that further advice or guidance is needed, you will be referred to our Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator (SENDCO).

The school SENDCo is Mrs L Martin for Key Stage 1 and 2 and Mrs J Molloy for Foundation Stage.


Sefton’s Local Offer

All Sefton Local Authority schools have a similar approach of meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.

All school are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are:

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
  • Sensory and/or Physical Needs.

Sefton's Local Offer  tells parents how to access services in their area and what to expect from these services. It identifies how the different schools in the LA aim to meet the need of SEND pupils as determined by school policy and the provision that the school is able to provide.


Additional Support

Sefton's 'Children with Complex Needs and Special Educational Needs team', can be contacted via their Social Care Advice Line for parents of children with SEND. This advice line is staffed by social workers who have sound knowledge of the Local Offer in Sefton and information regarding support available to parents and families. 

The telephone number for the Social Care Advice Line for SEND is 0151 934 2196.

Another useful resource, is Barnardo's SENDIASS in Sefton, who provide Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Services for children, young people aged 0-25 and their parents or carers where the child has, or may have, special educational needs or disability.
