The Governors and staff at Croft Church of England Primary School are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils through the provision of challenging and exciting experiences. We celebrate their diversities and differences by embracing an inclusive ethos throughout the school. We recognise that quality learning takes place when we motivate pupils, promote their self-esteem and develop the skills and aptitudes they require to enable them to make their way as lifelong learners.

We understand the importance of finding out the perceptions and feelings of children, and encourage them to be actively involved in their own learning. We value working in partnership with parents, children, and outside agencies to ensure the best provision possible.

At Croft Church of England Primary School we  are committed to developing cultures, policies and practices that are inclusive.

We have systems to identify when children have barriers affecting their learning and tailor specific interventions to enable pupils to overcome their barriers.

The school’s Special Education Needs Coordinator, SENCO, is Mrs Gemma McManus, and the link Governor is Mrs Kathryn Billington.

The SENCO can be contacted by email

The school’s Special Educational Needs Policy is reviewed annually and is available in school and on the school website for inspection.

The school’s accessibility plan  is aimed at:

  • increasing the extent disabled pupils can participate in the curriculum,
  • improving the physical environment for disabled pupils
  • improving the availability of accessible information for pupils.

Mrs Wallace is the designated person for Looked After Children. We liaise closely with the relevant Local Authorities to provide additional support for these children.
