Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Our school’s SENDCO is Mrs E Gilbey.
If you wish to contact Mrs E Gilbey please email

Our acting SEND Governor is Cheryl Todd. She comes into school every term to be updated on the school’s SEND provision.

We are very proud of the way we work in partnership with the parents of our SEND children.

At The Glebe Primary School, we are committed to providing the best possible education for all of our children. Those children with special educational needs are closely monitored by Mrs Gilbey and their class teachers.

We will endeavour to improve provision for disabled pupils and staff by developing the physical environment of the school, within the limits of the resources available. Where necessary, we will try to improve the following; access to the school, by providing disabled parking, ramps, handrails, movement around the building, e.g. by adaptations, such as improved colour schemes, for people with impaired sight, accommodation within the building, by providing toilets for disabled pupils, information and communication technology, by selecting appropriate hardware and software signage, by putting it in clear print.

The school and our governor’s work with a wide range of external agencies such as Speech and Language, Educational Psychology Service, CAMHs and Occupational Therapy to ensure the children get the support they require and we provide additional adult support and resources when needed.

Intervention work is provided to overcome barriers and to bridge gaps in learning. This may be working in small groups with Teaching Assistants or on a one to one basis with outside agencies.

Members of staff are trained to support children with a wide range of learning, medical, behavioural and emotional needs.

We are committed to working closely with parents and believe that the school and parents must work together in partnership, each carrying out their own particular responsibilities to help pupils gain the most from their time in school. However, the school is obliged to have procedures in place in case there are complaints by parents or legal guardians. Our complaints policy can be found here.
