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 8th September 2020.
At Dean Bank Primary School, 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 special educational need or disability.
Our school recognises that there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN.
Our commitment to ensuring everyone of our children reach their full potential, including those children who are disadvantaged or have Special Educational Needs was recognised in our recent OFSTED Inspection report:
Pupils with special educational needs and / or disabilities (SEND) make strong progress from their starting points. Ofsted 8-9 May 2019
This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan.
