Information for Parents/Carers of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) 30.04.20: Letter from DHSC & DFE

At Great Moor Infant School one of our core values is “inclusion”. All of our children are unique and deserve the opportunity to reach their potential during their time with us and beyond.  
The SEND process in Great Moor Infant School is a cyclical process of:
  •  Identifying the strengths and needs of our children
  •  Planning bespoke support to encourage their strengths and overcome their barriers
  •  Delivering bespoke support to encourage their strengths and overcome their barriers
  •  Reviewing progress and celebrating success
Every stage of the SEND process is done in a collaborative partnership with Parents and Carers. All of our children are encouraged to share their feelings on their care too. 
We have access to many agencies in Stockport (Speech and Language Service, Sensory Support Service, Healthy Young Minds, Primary Jigsaw, Behaviour Support Service, Learning Support Service, The Autism Partnership, Ethnic Diversity Service, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Educational Psychology, Stockport Family and medical professionals for example!)  and may call upon their expertise to support your child if required. As always this would be agreed collaboratively. 
For more detail about the type of support your child may receive if they require it please follow the link to the Entitlement Framework.
For more information about a multitude of SEND services available across the borough follow the link to the Stockport Local Offer.
If you have any specific queries as always you are welcome to contact your child’s class teacher, the SENDCo (Eve May) or the head teacher (Yvonne Dobson).
