Special Educational Needs/Disabilities (SEND)

Ranelagh Primary is a Local Authority (LA) maintained school.  All LA maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs/Disabilities (SEND).  We are supported by the LA to ensure that pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress.  All schools aim to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with SEND being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.


The way SEND pupils' needs should be met is underpinned by the SEND Code of Practice (2015).  The four broad areas of need are:


  • Communication and Interaction 
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties 
  • Sensory and Physical Needs 


The links below provide additional information about support for pupils with SEND and a copy of our SEND policy is also available here.
