Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

This page contains information for parents and carers on how we support children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) at St.Kentigern's RC Primary School.

On the 1st September 2014 a new Special Educational Needs Code of Practice became law.  This has some significant changes to the old code of practice.  The SEN Code of Practice still identifies SEND pupils as those with needs that are additional to and different from their peers. The main issues affecting schools and young people are:


  • The code of practice covers children and young people from the age of 0 – 25
  • The old statement of Educational Needs has been replaced with an Education Health Care Plan, which will continue to support your child in their education as they journey through their school life and beyond
  • The old SEN categories of School Action and School Action Plus have been replaced by an overarching term as pupils having a SEND need


Contact Information

If you have any questions regarding your child’s current special needs, or you think your child may need additional support, please do not hesitate to contact either your child’s class teacher or Mrs. Malone / Miss Dempsy (SENCOs)
