Our SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) Provision

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

All Cheshire West and Chester Authority-maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with SEND and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. 

A pupil has SEND where their learning difficulty or disability calls for special education provision, namely provision different from or additional to that normally available to pupils of the same age.

Mrs Higginson is responsible for all matters regarding SEND at Elton Primary School. To make an appointment to see Mrs Higginson please call the school office on 01244 667750 or to find out more about our SEND provision, please click on the attached documents below to view our SEN Policy and SEND Review Report.


What is Live Well Cheshire West?

From 2014 Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) aged 0 -25. Therefore the intention of the Live Well website is to provide information for children and young people with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) and their parents or carers, in a single place. It includes information from a range of local agencies, including education, health and social care. Knowing what is out there gives you more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for your child.

At Elton Primary School and Nursery, we are committed to ensuring equality and opportunity for disabled pupils, staff, and all those receiving services from the school regardless of gender, race, and disability.
