Pupils love coming to school. They are happy and safe in this nurturing environment.

SEND Key Information

At Stannington First School, we foster an ethos where all children regardless of gender, race or ability are appreciated; where opportunities to be creative, inquisitive and diligent are encouraged, leading to children who achieve highly and make the best progress they can so that they are fully prepared for the next stage of their education.


SEND Information

The SEND Information Report below is intended to give general information regarding the ways in which we support our pupils with special educational needs (SEND).

The content here is broad; each child is an individual and will receive unique provision and resources where necessary.

Children who we identify as having additional needs are provided with an individual plan which can cover educational, behaviour or health needs.

These plans are regularly reviewed to ensure that there is the best possible match between a child’s needs and the resources that are provided.

Further information can be obtained by contacting our SEND Coordinator.


Northumberland Local Offer

Every local authority must publish a Local Offer.

The SEND Code of Practice says that the local offer should:  provide clear, comprehensive accessible and up to date information about provision and how to access it… make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and those with SEN and their parents, and disabled young people and those with SEN, and service providers in its development and review (paragraph 4.2)

The following documents are available in the 'Policies, Plans and Procedures' section of our website:
  • Accessibility Plan
