Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
Sudbourne Primary is an inclusive school that supports children with a range of identified needs: communication and interaction, cognition and learning, social, emotional and mental health as well as sensory and physical needs.
We believe that all pupils are entitled to a quality provision. We place great importance on the need to ensure that all of our pupils are included equally in opportunities for learning to enable them to achieve their potential.
The School's SENDCO is Ms. Karen Gregory, Deputy Headteacher. Ms Gregory can be contacted by telephone or email:

At Sudbourne Primary School and Nursery we recognise that the quality of teaching within the classroom has the greatest influence over children’s progress. We therefore invest in training, resources and monitoring to ensure our classrooms are an inclusive place for all children. We use the Graduated Approach to identify children who may benefit from additional targeted support.
Additional interventions are planned to enable children to accelerate their progress and work at, or above the expectations for their age. These are generally taught in a small group and are reviewed every 10 weeks.
A child identified as having SEND may also receive ‘Specialist’ interventions. These may be provided individually or in a small group, and the support provided is personalised to enable the child to achieve his/her potential. This support is additional to or different from the everyday curriculum for that class and is detailed in a tailored Learning Plan. This plan is prepared by the SENDCo and class teacher and is reviewed termly. It may also include provision and/or advice from an external agency or professional, such as a Speech and Language therapist. Please take a look at our Provision Map for further information.
