Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

The Code of Practice for supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities has changed significantly. One of the expectations it has introduced is that schools should report annually to parents how they identify, support and monitor the progress of children at the school with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo), Mrs Annie Blyth, has recently achieved the SENDCo National Award.

Our SEND policy, written in conjunction with the Trust, can be found here or in the panel on the left of this page.

Gamlingay Village Primary’s annual SEND reports can be found here:

SEND Report 2017/8

SEND Report 2016/7

SEND Report 2015/6
