Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)
At Priestmead, we believe that every child has the right to take part in a broad and balanced curriculum that enables them to fulfil their potential in a safe and happy environment. Our vision is for all our children to be fully included within school life and for all children to take part in learning activities that are suited to meet their needs.
We believe that being an inclusive school is about ensuring equality for all and providing opportunities for all learners regardless of their age, gender, aptitude or disability. We feel that every child should make excellent progress from whatever their starting point.
Miss Boghani is our school SENDCo, if your child has any additional needs and you would like to discuss the provision for your child in more detail, please contact her:

SEND at Priestmead - Our Approach
We set ambitious targets for all our children, and with you we help them to achieve them. This happens through a range of approaches including:
- Quality First Teaching
- Intervention Programmes
- A focus on GAP/PRE Teaching
- Additional adults for small group learning
We work with agencies such as Educational Psychologists and Speech and Language Therapists
If a child has a Special Education Need and/or a disability (SEND) , we will work in partnership with families to create the best possible provision we can. Miss Boghani is our SENDCo and her role is to help families understand what Priestmead can offer children with SEND, and also to support the teacher who will design the curriculum to best meet the needs of your child.
