At Banks Road Primary School, the SENCO is responsible for managing the SEND provision.

Please try not to worry if you or your child’s teacher believe your child may have Special Educational Needs. There are lots of people in school who can help and we will do all we can to make sure your child receives the support they need.

If you have any questions or queries about Special Educational Needs at any point during your child’s time at our school, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Savage.

The designated governor for SEND is Mrs Dora Fletcher. Mrs Fletcher and Mr Savage meet termly to:

  • discuss developments in the school’s SEND provision,
  • discuss progress of children on the SEND register ,
  • provide an opportunity for Mrs Fletcher to challenge Mr Savage on the quality of the provision and suggest improvements.

Any concerns or complaints relating to the provision of SEND should in the first instance be made to Mr Savage, SENCO. If the matter cannot be resolved then further representation should be made to the Head Teacher. We have a Complaints Procedure which is available from the school office upon request or on our Policies page.
