Special Educational Needs

Meeting the needs of all our children

At Fountains CE Primary School we provide an inclusive environment for all children to enjoy and achieve.

What does SEN(D) mean?

At Fountains CE Primary School we believe that all children can make good progress when provided with high quality differentiated teaching which takes account of specific learning styles.

Children are assessed regularly to ensure that they are making the expected progress and there is a shared responsibility for progress.  Teachers meet at least termly with the headteacher to discuss pupil progress during which children identified as not making expected progress are discussed and interventions are planned.  For the majority of children these ongoing conversations are sufficient to secure progress.

 For some pupils however additional SEN support is required.  A child can have SEN in one of the four areas of need (as identified in the 2014 SEN Code of Practice): 

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

Within this section of the website there is a range of information designed to help parents and carers understand the school's approach to supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities. 

 Who do I need to know?

In most cases your primary contact will be your child’s class teacher; however there may be times where the education of your child leads to involvement from the SENCo, Miss Wray. If you have any concerns regarding your child then please raise them with the class teacher and/or the SENCo. To contact Miss Wray please email or ring 01765 620631.


The following documents show what is on offer to all of our children and the support and challenge that is given at different times in their school life. 

Our Special Educational Needs (SEN) Information Report outlines the support and provision for parents / carers of children who have a SEND in our school.

The Local Authority has also published for Parents a Local Offer, which outlines what provision is available in North Yorkshire, in Education, Health and Care for young people 0 - 25 with SEND.
