Crakehall CofE Primary School
Our Provision for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Every Local Authority is required to publish information about services that are available in their area for children and young people from birth to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and also services outside the area that children and young people can use. This is known as the Local Offer.
Information on North Yorkshire County Council’s local offer can be found by accessing the link below.
All schools are required to complete an SEND Information Report that will contribute to the local offer and briefly detail the school’s provision. This is contained in the document below. Our SEND Policy can also be accessed below.
For information, the federation employs a highly experienced and very well qualified Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO). Her name is Mrs. Tamara Hayman. However, the school’s day to day work in this area is managed by Mrs. Janette Stewart.
Here are some useful links to sources of help and support for parents/carers with children with special educational needs:
POSCH Parents of Special Children – a charity/support group for parents and carers of children with SEN (firstname.lastname@example.org)
NYPACT The parent and carer forum for North Yorkshire http://nypact.org.uk/
SENDIASS Special Educational Needs and Disability Information Advice and Support Services (formerly Parent Partnership Services)
