At Park Road Sale Primary School we have an inclusive ethos. We strive to nurture and support every individual child to achieve their best. We aim for every pupil to fulfil their potential no matter what their needs. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all of our pupils and take into account the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Our inclusive community encourages children to enjoy learning, have fun, be happy, be respectful and care for one another in a safe and supportive environment.

 At Park Road Sale all our staff will have due regard for the Special Needs Code of Practice when carrying out duties towards all pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities, and ensure that parents are notified when SEN provision is being made for their child. Provision is available for all 4 areas of need outlined in the SEND Code of Practice

 Communication and Interaction

The school provides support for pupils with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). This includes children with ASD, including Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism.

 Cognition and Learning

The school provides provision for pupils with learning difficulties that impact on their ability to learn at the same pace as their peers, even with appropriate differentiation.

We also provide support for children with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD), which may affect one or more specific aspects of learning. This encompasses a range of conditions such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia.

 Social Emotional and Mental Health

At Park Road we support pupils who may at some point in their time at our school experience a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which manifest themselves in many ways. These may include becoming withdrawn or isolated, as well as displaying challenging, disruptive or disturbing behaviour.

 Sensory and/or Physical

The school is able to provide provision for pupils who require special educational provision because they have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities without appropriate adjustment or support. The school work alongside Trafford’s SENAS and other health care professionals to ensure that the appropriate support, resources and reasonable adjustments are made. Sensory needs provided for include visual impairment (VI) and hearing impairment (HI).

Children with medical conditions will have individual healthcare plans which specify the type and level of support required to meet their medical needs.
