SEND at Longney

At Longney CE Primary we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress and achieve their potential in school.

All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible. At Longney we work to ensure early identification of needs and to provide a continuum of support for children in order to enable them to make progress.A child or young person has Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (hereafter called SEND) if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her.

A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:
  • has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
  • has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.
​For further information, lease refer to our SEND Policy and other documents, which outlines the purpose, nature and management of special educational needs within our school.
