Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

At Frederick Nattrass Primary Academy, we aim to provide a secure and caring environment where we can meet the needs of every child. For the majority of children this is achieved through high quality, differentiated teaching of a relevant and progressive curriculum. We welcome all children in the community and ensure they all have the same opportunity to fulfil their potential and to participate in all aspects of academy life, including access to the whole curriculum.


The Frederick Nattrass Local Offer

Contained within these links are SEN contact details for parents to access support and information within the academy, the local authority and/or parent support services.

However the key points to note are:

The child, parent, school and partnership services will be working together to provide the best SEND support for your child.

Pupils who previously may be registered on our school SEN register as School Action or School Action plus will now be combined and registered as SEND SUPPORT.

For pupils who have previously had a Statement of Educational Need, these will gradually (up until 2018) be transferred to a new Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) with a “One Plan” individualised package of support. New referrals will be through EHCP system.

For further information please contact Miss Holly Burton – Assistant Principal and SENCo (Special Needs Co-ordinator) via school office 01642 360528.

Equality Statement

We are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the Academy, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith or religion or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and feel able to participate fully in academy life.

The achievement of pupils will be monitored by race, gender, SEN and Pupil Premium entitlement, and we will use this data to support pupils, to raise standards and ensure quality first inclusive teaching, thus helping all pupils achieve their maximum potential.

We will tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereo-types and creating an environment which champions respect for all.
