SEND Information Report

Welcome to our SEND Information Report which is part of Durham County Council's Local Offer for children and young people with Special Educational Needs.

At Vane Road Primary School we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.

 Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN.

At  Vane Road Primary School Mr Kieran Pavey is the designated person for Looked after Children who works closely with the SENCO, Miss Wren  to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN.

 At Vane Road Primary School we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.
