Special Education Needs & Disability (SEND)




Story Wood School is a mainstream primary school which prides itself on being an inclusive school. We are committed to supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities (whose needs can reasonably be met in mainstream education) to ensure that every child meets their full potential.


What do Story Wood mean by the term ‘Special Educational Need and Disability’ ?(SEND):

A pupil has SEN where their learning difficulty or disability calls for special educational provision; that is provision different from or additional to that normally available to pupils of the same age.


The main areas of need identified at Story Wood are as follows:

  • Communication and Interaction

  • Cognition and Learning

  • Social, emotional and mental health difficulties

  • Sensory and/ or physical needs


The information below outlines in detail how identified SEND children at Story Wood are supported and how they and their parents can access additional information and support.

We have tried to cover everything that existing and new parents may want the answers to. However if you have any additional questions or comments regarding the school’s SEND provision or the school’s SEN offer your feedback is always helpful and valued. You can email the SENCO directly at:


This offer is what we can currently provide in terms of provision for pupils with SEND.
