At Didsbury road we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school and we value every child as an individual. We recognise that all children, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) , can achieve and be successful. For further information about how we support children with additional needs, please take the time to read our SEND Information Report below.
The name of our SENDCo is Miss Chambers. If you have any questions regarding our Special Educational Needs and Disability provision or any SEND concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Chambers using the admin email address: email@example.com or calling 0161 432 2240
Are you concerned about your child’s progress?
If you are concerned about your child’s progress the first step is to talk to your child’s class teacher. The class teacher is responsible for working with your child on a daily basis and for planning and delivering lessons. If you need further help, support or advice, please contact Miss Chambers and arrange an appointment to discuss your child’s needs further.
At the end of every term, parents of children with SEND are invited to review the effectiveness of the additional provision and the progress made towards targets during SEND support plan review meetings. Following this meeting, we invite all parents of children with SEND to feedback their thoughts using a questionnaire. Thank you to all of the parents who have taken their time to share their views. The results of the questionnaire are overwhelmingly positive, although we recognise there is always room for improvement. We continue to use parent's feedback to inform how we plan to improve the care, provision and outcomes for every child at our school.
