Introduction to SEND at Cambois

At Cambois Primary School we are committed to ensuring that all children are supported to enable them to make good progress in all areas of their development. 

At Cambois we believe that in order to effectively support children who may have additional needs it is vital to have early identification / assessment and high quality provision. 

Mrs Allan is our Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCO) - if parents have any concerns about Special Educational Needs they are encouraged to contact her.
If any parent has a concern or would like to make a complaint about SEND please do so by contacting the Head teacher or Assistant Headteacher.
For children of compulsory school age, they have a special educational need/learning difficulty or disability if they:

  1. have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or
  2. have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools

A child under compulsory school age has special educational needs if they fall within the definitions above or would do if special educational provision was not made for them.

Children with special educational needs or disabilities may need extra help or support, or special provision made for them to allow them to have the same opportunities as others of the same age. If a child or young person has special educational needs or disabilities their needs will fall into one or more of the following four areas:

1. Communication and interaction
2. Cognition and learning
3. Emotional, social and mental health 
4. Physical and/or sensory

"Cambois Primary School supports the whole family, not just the child with additional needs."
