SEND & Inclusion
Lenthall Infant and Nursery School is an inclusive school that supports children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND).
Our school SENDCo is Miss Elizabeth Brown, who can be contacted via the main school office.
Miss Brown ensures that as a school we:
- Work in partnership with parents and external agencies (where necessary) to support the early identification of special educational needs.
- Deliver excellent teaching to all of our pupils but particularly to those that have SEND so that their progress is strong from their individual starting points.
- Deliver targeted interventions and one-to-one support as necessary so that children are able to keep up with their peers.
- Signpost families to the support on offer through the Local Authority and other networks.
- Liaise effectively and efficiently with a range of external professionals.

- How do we identify pupils that may need extra help
- What to do if you think your child may have SEN
- Our SEND Coordinator (SENDCo)
- How we support children with SEND
- The accessibility of our school environment
Our 3-year accessibility plan sets out our aims in ensuring that the school is fully accessible in terms of access to the curriculum, the physical environment, and to information for members of our school community.
Leaders make good use of the additional funding the school receives. They provide extra teaching to individuals and small groups. This additional support is having a positive impact on improving the achievement of disadvantaged pupils and pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities.
