Special Educational Needs and Disabilities  (SEND)


Our Local Offer

Believe ~ Discover ~ Aspire


We have high aspirations for all children in our school, including those with SEND.   We strive to ensure that all children achieve their best, that they become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training.

Below you will find links to our SEND Policy and SEND Information Report - these will help you to understand how we work with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.  There are also links to Dorset County Council pages and other websites and documents which we hope will be helpful to you.

SEND at Stalbridge Primary School

What to do if you are concerned about your child's progress or well-being or if you think your child may have a Special Educational Need?.


In the first instance, the very best person to speak to would be your child's class teacher.  They will then speak and take advice from our SENCO, Mrs Sharon Reddyhoff.
