SEN Information

Special Educational Needs Information


 Simonside Primary School is a fully inclusive school. We ensure that all pupils are supported to reach their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, physical ability or educational needs. We recognise and value the need for a full range of educational and pastoral support.   In addition to a fully qualified SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) and SENTA (Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant), we also work very closely with our Parent Support Advisor and various other professionals from a wide range of outside agencies.


This document is intended to provide parents, carers and families with information regarding the ways in which we support all of our pupils, particularly pupils identified with a special educational need or disability. Our practice is continuously monitored and modified to meet the changing requirements of individual pupils’ needs.


Simonside Primary School operates its SEN provision in line with Newcastle Local Authority’s SEN and disabilities policies and procedures.
