SEND

Lyngford Park Primary School’s approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) is to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a SEND being met within a class based setting wherever possible and where families want this to happen.

Lyngford Park Primary School believes every child can succeed, thrive and make progress. Every child has unique strengths and unique needs. It can be hard to know what is available and what your child is entitled to, what they need to succeed and what is typical for their age and stage of development, so this area of the website provides parents and carers of children with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) or parents with concerns about their child with information and advice which will signpost you to the school’s services and resources.

You can contact our SENCos through the school office by telephoning 01823 284 912. Alternatively, you can use the e-mail address sendco@lp.huish.education

We also understand that you know your child best and you may feel that they need some additional help or support for some or all of their time at school. The documents below provide information about the types of support available to your child at Lyngford Park Primary School and will help you to understand who can help and how this support can be accessed.
