Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)
Nursery Hill Primary School is a fully inclusive school. We work hard to meet the needs of all of our children.
Mrs Christine Perkins is our SENDCo (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Coordinator). Please feel free to contact Christine with any queries regarding special educational needs.
Our governor in charge of SEND is Tim Render. SEND provision is discussed at full Governing Body meetings and these reports can be seen on the meeting minutes.

The Governors receive information each year from the SENCo about the number of children on the Special Needs Register. Information is given about ‘interventions' and the training of members of staff, together with updates to the Special Educational Needs Policy.
The Senior Leadership Team verify school data related to all vulnerable groups to see that needs are appropriately met.
The governors play an important role by ensuring that:
They are fully involved in developing and monitoring the school’s SEND Policy
They are up-to-date and knowledgeable about the school’s SEND provision, including how funding, equipment and personnel resources are deployed
SEND provision is an integral part of the Learning Improvement Plan through vulnerable groups
The quality of SEND provision is continually monitored
The IASS Network was previously known as the National Parent Partnership Network (NPPN), who undertook a similar role with local Parent Partnership Services.
In 2014, as part of the national SEND reforms, Parent Partnership Services changed to include provision to children and young people and became known as IAS Services.
The IASS Network is funded by the Department for Education and is based within the Council for Disabled Children in the National Children's Bureau.
They provide a range of support to local IAS Services helping them to evaluate, develop and improve provision for children, young people and their families.
Promote the development and standards of IAS Services.
Provide training to IAS Services on a range of subjects including the law on SEN and disability, health and social care (with IPSEA).
Promote service impartiality and arrangements that ensure IAS Services operate at 'arm’s length' from their local authority.
Provide a national picture of the work of IAS Services through annual reporting.
Promote dialogue and collaboration between IAS Services and other partners.
Engage with the Department for Education on key issues arising for IAS Services.
Facilitate the SEND Information Organisations Group - a network of organisations that provide direct advice and support to families of children with SEND.
Work with the Independent Support Programme to ensure parents and children are recieving high quality IAS.
