Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

At Beckfoot Heaton School, our main aim is to promote high expectations and raise standards of achievement across all areas of the school, delivering equality of opportunity and inclusion to every child, in a happy, purposeful, caring environment, ensuring that no child is left behind.

Some children require extra help, and our aim is to make sure that the more help they need, the more help they get. This is called a ‘graduated approach’. Support comes in a variety of different forms within school. The support that is most appropriate to your child in order to meet their individual needs will be discussed with you on a regular basis.  

If difficulties persist or are particularly complex, the school’s SEND co-ordinator Davina Blanshard-Jones, external agencies and specialists will become increasingly involved in supporting the child and their family.

Beckfoot Heaton Primary takes account of its responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 and the SEND Code of Practice 2014. We do not treat disabled pupils less favourably than others, and we will always take reasonable steps to avoid putting disabled pupils at a substantial disadvantage. There is an Accessibility Plan to increase the ability of the school to cater for the needs of the disabled pupils.

Parents/carers are invited to inform school of any disability that could prevent or impair their child’s full participation in school life. If we are made aware of any problems, we always try to make alternative arrangements to overcome any difficulties.
