Crossley Street Primary School

Inspiring today to achieve tomorrow.

Special Education Needs and Disabilities

At Crossley Street Primary School, ‘the teaching of children who have special educational
needs is very effective. Their needs are accurately identified and help and guidance
provided so they can participate in all activities and make as much progress as possible.
Support is modified regularly in light of regular and accurate checking of their progress, to
make sure it is always having the desired impact’ (Ofsted 2012).

At Crossley Street, we are committed to the high achievement and holistic growth of all children. We work collectively to remove barriers to learning and participation that may hinder or exclude pupils. We believe in equality of opportunity for all children at Crossley Street, and make this a reality through the support we provide for pupils and their families. Mrs Gemma Stanton is our current Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator. As part of her role, Mrs Stanton oversees the provision for all children with SEND at Crossley Street Primary School.
