Heybrook Primary and Nursery

Heybrook Primary and Nursery School



Special educational needs (SEn)

Heybrook is an inclusive setting where we make education available for all children. We have high expectations and strive to meet the needs of all children enabling them to meet their full potential. This means that some children require additional and different support. This can look differently for different children. More information can be found in our Information Report and SEN Policy.  One of our core principles is for children to be happy and be successful, therefore it is paramount that children develop self-confidence and a positive self-esteem.  Therefore we ensure all children receive their entitlement to a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum with lots of opportunities for success. We also firmly believe that all children have an entitlement to a basic standard of Literacy and Numeracy.

Admissions for children with Special Educational Needs is made through Rochdale Admissions team if your child does not have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) or through the SEN team if they do have an EHCP.  The school's Accessibility plan and Equality policy outline the facilities we have to help disabled pupils access the school and how we ensure disabled pupils are treated equally. 

The progress of all our children is monitored closely through regular assessment and evaluation of progress. We aim to intervene swiftly when concerns about progress occur. Therefore children may receive effective, well- founded interventions.

The school works closely with families and is keen to resolve issues swiftly and effectively. Further information about how complaints are dealt with can be found on the Policy section of this website.
