At Abbot's Hall Primary School we are committed to providing inclusive and high quality support for all learners across the curriculum. We work to ensure that resources and support are available to enable all children to meet their full potential whether or not they have a diagnosed Special Educational Need or Disability. 

We recognise that many children will experience difficulties at some point in their education and strive to ensure all needs are met, whether a child requires long or short term support to manage this. 

We work effectively with children, parents, carers and other agencies and services to enable us to provide the best possible care and education for every pupil by making reasonable adjustments to our curriculum, building and grounds in line with the Equalities Act 2010.

Our Parent Forum met to discuss how to present SEND information to parents and the community and came up with the following Frequently Asked Questions to direct you to the information you may be looking for.
