At Stanborough Primary School we firmly believe in every child’s right to receive an education that fosters their individual growth and well-being. Our school policies serve as a testament to the dedication of our staff and governors at Stanborough Primary, who are committed to ensuring that every member of our school community has equitable opportunities.
For our school, equity goes beyond mere uniform treatment; it entails recognising and addressing the various obstacles that may lead to unequal outcomes among different pupil groups. It also involves celebrating and appreciating the accomplishments and strengths of all our school community members.
We maintain that the principle of equality should permeate every facet of school life, and it is the shared responsibility of every member of our school and the broader community. We aspire to create an environment where every individual within our school community feels safe, valued, secure, and equally esteemed. Our aim is to ensure that all individuals, irrespective of their unique needs, can fully access the resources and opportunities offered by the school. We actively discourage any form of inappropriate language or behaviour within our school community.
A child has a Special Educational Need if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. This is provision which is different from or additional to that which is normally available to pupils of the same age.
There are four broad areas of Special Educational Needs
- Communication and interaction
- Cognition and learning
- Social, emotional and mental difficulties
- Sensory and/or physical needs
If you have concerns about your child, please speak to their class teacher or the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo), who is Adenike Adewole.
To get in touch with Mrs Adewole, please contact the school office on 01923 673291 or email firstname.lastname@example.org FAO Mrs Adewole
