Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)


A Parent's Guide to Special Educational Needs at Huby CE Primary School


Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is Miss Jane Cunningham. Our SEND Governor is Mrs Rachel Comerford.


All about special educational needs


Approximately one in five children will have special educational needs (SEN) at some time during their school career.

This means that they may have difficulty with:


  • Reading, writing, mathematics
  • Understanding information and others and expressing themselves
  • Organising themselves
  • Sensory perception or physical mobility
  • Managing their behaviour
  • Making friends or relating to adults


These difficulties cause barriers to the child's learning. The school will assess your child to identify their strengths, needs and the extra help they may require. They may be at one of two stages on the SEN Code of Practice SEN thresholds:


SEN Support: Extra help in class from a teaching assistant, small group support, ICT access and advice or support from outside specialists eg specialist teacher, speech and language therapist, health professional.


Education, Health and Care Plan:  when needs are complex and severe.
