Our vision, values and broader aims for pupils with SEND at Tollgate Primary School is an integral part of everyday school life. As a Primary School for children aged 3 to 9 the foundations of learning is embedded within our curriculum.
A wide range of opportunities are available to the children to allow them to experience new things and enrich their learning. We are proud of our strong relationships with our school community, children, parents, staff and the Trust.
Through planning, use of choice and challenge, and differentiation, we enable pupils to make their best progress. We understand that there may be occasions when a pupil requires additional support to achieve their best and we endeavour to tailor the provision available to enable pupils with an additional need to access the curriculum and learning opportunities available so that they are able to achieve what they are truly capable of.
Our SEND Information Report is available in the attachments section.
The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator at Tollgate Primary School is Miss D Smithwho can be contacted via our school office.
