Special Education Needs (SEND)

Overview

Hello,

My name is Miss Lawson and I am the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) at Brook Community Primary School. Our aim is to ensure that all children with SEN have the support they need.  We work with you, your child, their teachers and support staff to identify individual needs and together plan a curriculum that will enable them to achieve their full potential.

Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can affect a child or young person’s ability to learn. They can affect their:

  • behaviour or ability to socialise, for example they struggle to make friends
  • reading and writing, for example because they have dyslexia
  • ability to understand things
  • concentration levels, for example because they have ADHD
  • physical ability
