At Houldsworth Valley we do our best to ensure that necessary provision is made for all pupils including those with SEND and those needs are made clear to all who are like to teach him/her. The school does its best to ensure that all teachers are able to identify and provide for SEND pupils.

Teachers should take the lead role in meeting special educational needs. Teachers are responsible and accountable for the progress and development of the pupils in their class, including where pupils access support from teaching assistants or specialist staff.

All teachers are teachers of children with special educational needs. Teaching such children is therefore a whole school responsibility.

If you have concerns or worries about your child please make an appointment to see:

  • Mrs Tweed, Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO)
  • SEND Named Governor: Mrs Nelson
