Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Adlington Primary School we aim to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment where everyone feels happy, safe and secure. We promote an atmosphere of truth and honesty in which everyone feels valued and shows respect for each other and their surroundings. As a team, we are committed to high expectations and continuous improvement. We adopt a child centred approach to high quality teaching and learning, inspiring everyone to achieve their full potential. If a child is experiencing difficulties with their learning, the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator works closely with parents, staff and outside agencies, to provide carefully planned support. This is in accordance with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.

The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator is Mrs. Rosie Hemmings.

The governor with responsibility for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is Mrs. Nancy Tennant.


If you would like any further information, Mrs Hemmings can be contacted via our school secretary:
