Special Educational Needs And Disabilities

The educational needs of most of our students are met through carefully structured work in the classroom, balancing support and challenge for children of every ability level. Some students, however, encounter a variety of learning difficulties. We undertake liaison with primary schools to identify appropriate support strategies, and then monitor and assess individuals throughout school. We aim to provide support as far as possible within the resources available. If necessary, additional support can be requested from the Local Authority; this will be organised by the Special Needs Coordinator, Mr C Jackson, after full consultation with parents/carers.  Mr Jackson can be contacted on 0191 3882248 / cjackson@parkviewlearning.net. The SEND Governor is Mrs Caygill and can be contacted by the main office.

The School identifies and supports students with specific academic, sporting or musical gifts, providing a range of extension and enrichment opportunities for them throughout the academic year.

Park View SEND Information Report

From September 2014, the Governor asked all Local Authorities in the UK to publish a local offer.  This is information about the services and provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND).  In addition, every school has to publish what they can offer their own pupils.  At Park View School we are an inclusive school and cater for a wide range of individual needs.  Please feel free to view the ‘Local Offer’ document below, which should explain in more detail the provision that will be made for your child at Park View School.
