Ordsall Primary School



Special Educational Needs


Ordsall Primary School is committed to providing an inclusive environment to enable all children to reach their full potential as we play, learn and grow together.


Our aim is to offer all children a rich and exciting curriculum and provide experiences which support and prepare our children for the next stages of their lives. We develop a child centred approach and support the development of children’s mental health and well-being. Metacognition is central to all of our learning as we promote independence, self-esteem and resilience.


Ordsall Primary School follow the guidelines set by the DfE in the Code of Practice to ensure that the needs of our children are identified early. The category of needs may include;

  • Cognition and Learning needs
  • Communication and Interaction
  • Sensory, physical and/or medical
  • Social, Emotional and Mental health


We work in partnership with parents, carers and outside agencies to meet the needs of our children within a mainstream setting. Our whole school approach to the setting of an individual education plan (IEP) supports our graduated response to meeting the needs of children throughout their time at Ordsall Primary School.


If you require any further information or guidance please contact our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo), Mrs Kerry Moss or our SEND manager, Miss Tracy Rollison.
