SEND Offer

Harlow Green Community Primary School is a maintained mainstream school for students from the ages of 3 to 11.  The governing body and staff aims for all children to be included regardless of whether they have special educational needs or not. We will provide equal opportunities for all  children which will allow them to experience success and achievement and to reach their full potential. We are an inclusive school and strive to support all children to enable them to make the best possible progress and achieve well.

To accomplish these aims we offer a broad and balanced curriculum with high-quality teaching.  Our school caters for students with additional support at school if the child has an identified Special Educational Need and/or Disability. The term Special Educational Need and Disability (SEND) describes the needs of children who have a difficulty or disability which makes learning harder for them than other children of the same age.

We provide effective support for children with special educational needs and disabilities, starting from our first contact with parents and carers when a child enters our school. We make sure that additional needs are identified early and we offer a range of provision according to identified needs. We work with a range of other professionals, e.g. from Health, to make sure that all children receive the support they need to do well at school.
