SEND Information (Special Educational Needs and Disability)
Cledford Primary School aims to provide a caring, supportive and accessible environment in which all pupils are valued equally and are given the opportunity to develop their full potential. The emphasis is on inclusion and all students are given access to the national curriculum and all other activities - physical, moral and spiritual - so that they have a broad and balanced curriculum. Nurturing is embedded throughout the curriculum and, where required, some children may follow a more tailored personalised curriculum based on their individual needs. When admitting SEND pupils into school we follow Cheshire East's admission arrangements.
The current Special Educational Needs & Disability Co-ordinator at Cledford is Mr C Simpson. You can contact him via the school office:
The SEND governors are Mr M Powell and Mr K Frogatt
Cledford has a SEND policy which strives to help children who are experiencing difficulty in school. Pupils receive support tailored to their individual needs and regular reviews take place. The SEND co-ordinator works closely with class teachers to provide support for identified pupils.
Any child on the SEND register will be supported through a graduated response and documents such as a SEND Support Plan may be used. This is in line with government and Local Authority guidelines.
