Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Poppleton Ousebank Primary School, all pupils, regardless of their special educational need or disability, are provided with inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress and feel that they are a valued member of the school community. 

In line with the whole school vision and values, we aim to provide a curriculum that inspires and challenges all learners and prepares them for the future. Through inclusive teaching and learning, support and encouragement and working closely with parents and carers, we can enable the fulfilment of each child’s potential.

Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs Carli Bean. (Currently Mr Tim Godfrey – covering MAT leave)

Our governor for SEND is Mr Alan Park
