SEND – Special Educational Needs & Disability

At Livingstone Road Infant School and Livingstone Road Junior School, we strive to support children and enable them to achieve to the best of their ability. We prioritise an inclusive education for all pupils. We celebrate that all children are unique and have the potential to make excellent progress, whatever their starting point.

Quality first teaching is vital, however, if some children find it challenging to make progress, we acknowledge that adaptions may be required to ensure that those with more complex needs are given the same opportunities to thrive academically, socially and emotionally as their peers.

We believe that early identification of additional learning needs is essential – ensuring that pupils receive the right support at the right time. We work hard to help remove barriers to learning and to support our children through each stage of their learning journey.
