A commitment to inclusivity
Georgeham Primary School is small, welcoming and inclusive with a very special ethos. Our aims for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are the same as for all of our pupils; to provide access to a broad and balanced curriculum that is creative, adventurous and ambitious, with everyone having the confidence to fully participate through our kind supportive school community. We understand the importance of making adjustments and personalisation of provision, and building a picture based on the whole child.
Putting the child at the heart of our SEND processes
We have established a genuine culture of school, family, community and services working together. We actively encourage partnerships with parents. Our aim is to inform and involve parents as much as possible in school decision making and provide them with support, advice and access to services. We believe in child-centred learning and pupils are enabled to be active participants through our values of being kind, encouraging curiosity, ensuring a confident self-belief, feeling part of our community, an adventurous spirit and a sense of ambition for every child. We are lucky enough to have a very dedicated staff team, all of whom view themselves as teachers of all pupils, including those with SEND.
Our school SENDCo is Mrs Lucy Rinvolucri. She is a member of our senior leadership team and Class 2’s Teacher.
She can be contacted directly through the school office, Tel: 01271 890440 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Admissions procedures – Admission arrangements for children with special educational needs or disabilities follow our admissions policy found in the policy section of this website. Where a pupil has an Education, Health, and Care Plan (EHCP) the SENDCo will always plan with the family and outside agencies prior to admission.
Accessibility Plan – Our school has an accessibility plan that outlines the steps we are continually taking to increase the extent that disabled pupils can participate fully in the school. Our plan and its rationale can be viewed in the Accessibility Plan link below.
Avoiding discrimination – Our school has a clear understanding of its duties to ensure equality of access and avoid discrimination for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. We are a genuinely inclusive school, and we employ our best endeavours and make reasonable adjustments to ensure an individual’s needs are met.
Complaints procedures – We do understand that there can be increased anxieties for families around supporting pupils with additional needs. However, we also recognise how important it is that every decision being made is always in the best interest of the individual child. We aim to resolve any difficulties in a respectful, fair and transparent way.
