SEND provision for Children and Young People at Rimrose Hope CE Primary School
Welcome to our Special Education and Disability web page. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions relating to SEND provision
If you want to know more about how your child is supported in school or think they need more support then your first point of contact is the class teacher. Call the office to request a time to meet the class teacher.
In the first instance we would recommend that you speak to your child's class teacher and then the team leader for your child's phase
EYFS ( Reception and Nursery classes) Mr. Ward
KS1 ( Years 1 and 2) Miss McMinn
LKS2 (Years 3 and 4) Mrs. Ginn
UKS2 ( Years 5 and 6) Mrs. Warrington
If after these discussions we feel that you would benefit from further advice or guidance we will refer you to our Special Educational Needs and Disability coordinator: Mrs. Ginn.
Sefton's Local Offer
All Sefton Local Authority maintained schools have a similar approach to 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 schools 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, and Sensory and/or Physical Needs.
What is the Local Offer?
As part of the Children's and Families Bill 2014, Local Authorities are required to publish a 'Local Offer' which provides transparency for parents and sets out support that is available for children and young people with SEN in the local area.
Sefton's Local Offer is available on the Sefton website (see link below) and tells parents how to access services in their area and what to expect from these services.
