Sea View Primary School

Reaching new horizons




SEND at Sea View 


Sea View Primary School believes that all pupils are entitled to an education that enables them to achieve their best, become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and make a successful transition into adulthood.


Sea View Primary follows the defined duties outlined in the SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 years (2015). Staff, governors and pupils share the working definition of our vision and values and embrace the school slogan to ‘reach new horizons’.


Our inclusive values are also demonstrated through our curriculum offer. All children receive the same curriculum offer which is then tailored to meet their needs. Our curriculum is designed to promote a sense of awe and wonder which develops children’s cognitive skills as well as their knowledge and understanding. It inspires and motivates children to become lifelong learners through ensuring high levels of engagement, enthusiasm and fun.


We respect each child in our school for who they are, and we treat them with fairness and honesty. We want each person to be successful, and we provide equal opportunities for all children. It is important that children with SEND, can access the whole curriculum and that differentiation is clear to ensure any barriers are broken down.


During their journey throughout the school, children may present with difficulties in relation to cognition and learning, communication and interaction, social, emotional and mental health or physical difficulties. When special educational needs/disabilities are identified, school staff will contact parents/carers and invite them into school to discuss the concerns, the support and interventions being provided for their child and specific targets which have been set to enable progress to be made.


Staff then ensure that parents/carers are involved in reviewing and setting new targets for their child on a regular basis.


Where needed, the school will seek support and advice from specialist agencies in order to support the children to meet their full potential and achieve high quality outcomes. This may include involvement from different agencies such as; Educational Psychology, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Lifecycles, or CYPS. If these services would be beneficial for the child, then a discussion would take place with parents/carers and consent gained for a referral to be made.


Our rigorous assessment system enables us to identify children who are not achieving age related expectations or making progress. We can then identify the reasons why and decide on the steps needed to address the child’s individual needs.


Our SEND policy and SEN Information Report are available on the school website.

If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) Suzanne Greaves.
