At Priors Hall, we are passionate about all children receiving the best possible education and developing their full potential, in line with their individual needs and abilities. We endeavour to always provide a positive and nurturing environment whereby our children feel able to build upon their strengths and have the confidence to overcome their areas of development.

There are times when some children need additional support during their school life. Priors Hall - A Learning Community is an inclusive school, which offers a range of additional provision to support children with various SEND: including social, communication and interaction needs, learning difficulties and physical needs.

We endeavour to identify promptly a child’s particular needs and respond appropriately to enable them to make progress alongside their peers.

We aim to raise the aspirations and expectations of all pupils with SEND. We remain focused on the outcomes for all children with a view that they are unique and part of our role is to foster independence. We do this by setting appropriate learning outcomes and using a wide range of strategies, which are personalised to the individual rather than focused on hours and numbers.

There is a clear expectation that the responsibility and accountability for meeting the needs of our pupils with special educational needs lies with the class teachers and that strategies to meet their needs should permeate quality first teaching.

Provision for pupils with SEND is co-ordinated by the school SENDCo Miss Lucy Nisbet
