At Thorneyholme RC Primary School we value all children equally and do our utmost to welcome everyone into our school by ensuring that we have a fully accessible curriculum and appropriately adapted environment for all our pupils and parents/carers – regardless of any particular need that they have.
Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator is Miss Claire Halstead. She oversees the school’s policy and also checks that all children identified as requiring additional support have their needs met. The school also employs the support of a SEND consultant on a monthly basis to further support provision for SEND. Mrs Kerrie Davis is the consultant and she works closely with Miss Claire Halstead and all the staff members.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our class teachers are always happy to talk and, if you need a more in-depth chat, Miss Halstead will be happy to see you.

Complaints for parents of children with Special Educational Needs:
The complaint procedure for special educational needs mirrors the school’s other complaints procedures. Should a parent or carer have a concern about the special provision made for their child they should in the first instance discuss this with the class teacher.
If the matter is not resolved satisfactorily parents have recourse to the following:
discuss the problem with the Headteacher/ SENDCo
More serious on-going concerns should be presented in writing to the SEN Governor, who will inform the Chair of the Governors.
Should you wish to make an appointment with any of the above, please contact the school office on 01200 448276 or email@example.com
The complaints procedure can be found on the school website.
If the complaint regards a Statutory Assessment of a child’s needs, the complaint should be forwarded to the Local Authority.
