Lutton St Nicholas Primary AcademySEND Information

What is SEND?

SEND is Special Educational Needs and Disability. A child with SEND is understood to have either a learning difficulty or a disability and the child requires special educational provision which is additional to and different from that generally made for other children of the same age within a mainstream school.


The SENCo at our school is Mrs Amy Arnold.
Telephone: 01406 393392
If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school where an appointment can be made or further advice given.

SEND Graduated Approach

The Graduated Approach is the way early years settings, schools and post-16 providers support children and young people who have Special Educational Needs. The Graduated Approach begins with the expectation that all children receive high-quality teaching. This is called Universal Support. Some children will need support which is additional and different. It will be targeted to meet more specific needs and is called SEN Support.
