Church Lane Primary School prides itself in being an 'inclusive' school. The culture and the ethos of the school celebrates diversity and we aim to support all children to develop and achieve their potential.
We seek to support our children by...

  • identifying and assessing a special educational need early in a child's journey through school
  • closely monitoring their academic and personal achievements
  • working together in partnership with a child's family
  • responding to a child's diverse needs
  • overcoming potential barriers to learning


What is a Special Educational Need?

A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which call for special educational provision to be made for him or her.

A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or a disibility if he or she:

  • has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age or
  • has a disibilty that hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools
