Special arrangements in relation to COVID-19
Please find below an updated statement for our school's SEN information report at this time.
There are also a variety of links with related resources, activities and useful websites to support children in line with the SEN provision they would receive in school.
**A new telephone helpline for families of children and young people with additional needs has been set up.
The helpline will run from 23rd August through to the end of September with the purpose being to respond to any queries and concerns from our families around the return to school. For example, it might be a child is anxious about the return to school and getting back to learning after the long period of absence. It might be about Special Educational Needs and the support in place for children on their return, or it might be a question around school attendance. The helpline number is 0345 606 6172. On calling the number the parent or carer will be asked to provide some detail about their query and it will be directed to the right team/officer for support. A response will be offered within 2 working days.
Our Special Educational Needs/Disabilities Coordinator is Miss K Read

At Abbot's Hall Primary School we are committed to providing inclusive and high quality support for all learners across the curriculum. We work to ensure that resources and support are available to enable all children to meet their full potential whether or not they have a diagnosed Special Educational Need or Disability.
We recognise that many children will experience difficulties at some point in their education and strive to ensure all needs are met, whether a child requires long or short term support to manage this.
We work effectively with children, parents, carers and other agencies and services to enable us to provide the best possible care and education for every pupil by making reasonable adjustments to our curriculum, building and grounds in line with the Equalities Act 2010.
An invited Parent Forum met to discuss how to present SEND information to parents and the community and came up with a document for our SEN Information report and a number of 'Frequently Asked Questions', which you will find below as well as useful website links.
