Special Educational Needs


 Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can affect a child or young person’s ability to learn. They can affect their:

  • behaviour or ability to socialise, for example they struggle to make friends
  • reading and writing, for example because they have dyslexia
  • ability to understand things
  • concentration levels, for example because they have ADHD
  • physical ability

                                                                                                                  ( )


A proportion of children who attend All Saints Primary School and Nursery may require some additional support (either physical, intellectual, emotional, social or behavioural) for all or part of their school career. There may be times when parents become concerned about their child's development.

If this is the case, please talk to your child’s class teacher. They will then discuss this  further with Miss Platt, our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator [SENCo] and discuss ways to help accelerate progress and support their academic and emotional development.


Pupils with SEND will be admitted to school in line with the school admission policy. The school is aware of the statutory requirements of the SEN and Disability Act and will meet the acts requirement accordingly. 

If your child is going to attend Chorley All Saints CE Primary School and Nursery Unit and currently attends a pre-school and you are aware they are going to need specialist support; or you think they are not meeting the developmental age related milestones please contact us as soon as possible.  The earlier we know about your child's needs, the earlier we can put things in place.

In school, there are a number of interventions we use as part of everyday learning. If we need specialist support or your child needs to have extra funding in order to ensure they can access the curriculum, the process to get that support can take over a year. It is therefore vital that the school knows early so that we can start the process of collecting evidence to show what support is needed.




At Chorley All Saints Primary School and Nursery Unit our aims for SEND are: 


  • Early identification and intervention for SEND to ensure that progress and opportunities are maximized. 
  • Access for all children to a broad and balanced curriculum which is differentiated or individualized to enable them to understand the relevance and purpose of learning. 
  • An accessible learning environment tailored to the individual needs of all pupils.
  • To develop children’s independence and life skills. 
  • Regular monitoring of the progress of children with SEND, using a child centred approach. 
  • To provide good quality and relevant training for all staff members supporting children with SEND. 
  • To work in partnership with parents and carers. 
  • To work closely with external agencies and other professionals to support our families and develop our provision for children with SEND.
