SEND at Mowmacre Hill Primary School
At Mowmacre Hill Primary School we are committed to using our best endeavours to provide an appropriate and high quality education for all children which enables them to achieve their best, become confident individuals living fulfilling lives and make successful transition to their next phase of education.
We want to make sure that every child gets the best support we can offer in order to help them enjoy their learning, feel confident and be happy amongst their friends and make the best possible progress.
Every child has individual needs that will affect their learning. Sometimes children need additional support to give them an extra boost or to help them catch up with other children of the same age. They may need this support for a short time or a longer period, but during this time they will be part of our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Register and we will keep a close eye on their progress, look carefully at what special support they need and keep in touch with you.
