Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs

Long Sutton Primary School aims to provide the best learning environment and opportunities for your child. We value our nurturing, caring ethos and work together as a whole school community. We aim to provide  individualised provision to best meet the needs of all our children and any additional educational, social, emotional or physical needs a child may have. Exciting times are ahead as we see how our children continue to embrace their differences and use their resilience to travel through their learning adventure, ready to celebrate their successes.

This year we are focusing on developing a dyslexia friendly environment for the future of our school. We offer a welcoming and accessible classroom environment for all our children, we felt it was important to highlight this to our whole school community and go for Inclusive Dyslexia Friendly Schools accreditation. Mrs McKenzie, our SENCO, is  available to answer any questions, she normally works on Wednesdays.

Who do I see if I am concerned about my child?

  1. Firstly see your child’s class teacher. You can arrange to speak to them at a convenient time for you both.
  2. You can also arrange to speak and meet with the SENCO (Mrs McKenzie)  or the Headteacher (Mrs Reynolds). This can be arranged through the school office.

A reminder that you can find information on our local offer below, or as a paper copy in the front office. This will hopefully answer some FAQs.

Remember you can always go to www.somersetchoices.org.uk for information and useful websites. Also remember to look on the SEND noticeboard in the corridor, near the double doors.
