Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At St Andrew’s C.E. Primary School and Nursery, we believe in the right of all pupils to a broad and balanced curriculum and, to that end, all pupils have an entitlement to participate in the full range of the curriculum, including the National Curriculum and Foundation Stage Guidance.

“The special educational needs coordinator makes sure that the achievement of groups or individual pupils with special educational needs is tracked carefully and that such pupils receive good quality support during or outside lessons, leading to their good progress. Pupils who are disabled or who have special educational needs are fully involved and encouraged to participate in all activities. Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs benefit from good pastoral care and make good progress from their individual starting points. This is because teachers and teaching assistants have a thorough understanding of their needs, and pupils are effectively supported by well-planned teaching that promotes their good learning and progress.”

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The name of the Inclusion Manager is Mr Lynch who is happy to discuss any concerns you may have on 01706378991.


Mr Lynch, our Inclusion Manager, operates a parent drop in session on a Monday morning from 8.15-9.30am.

Due to his teaching commitments it is sometimes difficult to see parents in the morning on other days, therefore the drop-in session provides quality time set aside each week.  Appointments are available with Mr Lynch in 15 minute slots.

If you have any questions regarding our Special Educational Needs and Disability provision or any SEND and welfare concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Important Information

  • Special Educational Needs Policy This policy outlines our philosophy and our core aims regarding the teaching of children with SEND. It also gives details about key roles and responsibilities within school.
  • School Information Report This document is intended to give you information regarding the many ways in which we ensure we support all of our children, including those with SEND. It is important to note that it may not include every skill, resource and technique that we employ as these are continually being developed and modified to meet the changing requirements of individual children.


  • Rochdale Local Offer From 1 September 2014, all local authorities had to publish a Local Offer which provides information and advice on the services and provision available in the area for children and young people with SEN and/or a disability. Rochdale Borough Council consulted with parents, carers and young people on the Local Offer and obtained feedback on what they wanted to see included.
