SEN

An inclusive education describes the process by which a school attempts to respond to all pupils as individual by reconsidering and restructuring its curricular organisations and provision, allocating resources to enhance equality of opportunity.’
(Sebba and Ainscow, 1996)

At Hillstone Primary School, the SENDCo (Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator) is Vikki Chudleigh.  The SENDCo is responsible for co-ordinating the SEN provision across the school.

At Hillstone Primary School, we enable our children to achieve academic success through a rich, diverse and inclusive curriculum.  We provide many opportunities for our children to be motivated and enjoy learning through educational visits, residential activities and a variety of visitors who bring different experiences of life.It is important to us that every child is valued and their talents, skills and unique qualities are recognised.  We believe in developing the whole child and actively promote and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
