Special Education Needs and Disabilities

Our Aim

Our aim at City Road Primary School is to ensure that all children are happy and safe in their school environment, which helps them to become successful learners. City Road Primary School is a nurturing and inclusive school that endeavours to support all children's diverse needs.  

At City Road Primary School, we continually monitor the achievement and attainment of our pupils. We identify children who may have a special educational need and ensure that additional support is put in place to ensure they can achieve their full potential. Parents and pupils are involved and kept informed at every stage. We offer an open-door policy.  If you are concerned about your child, please contact the school SENDCO.

How are parents involved?

  • Meetings with SENDCo 

  • Target setting so parents can see what their child is working on next 

  • Home/school books to inform parents of important information 

  • Regular newsletters to share upcoming events in school 

  • Home reading logs 

  • Information on the school website 

  • Parents’ evenings 

  • Class and group workshops 

  • Signposting to parent groups 

  • Parents’ involvement in Individual Education Plans, SEN Support Plans, Education, Health Care Plans, and Annual Review documents
