Home Page


We aim to provide an inclusive learning environment to support all our children whether they have exceptional abilities and talents or face particular challenges in their learning, or have medical or emotional needs. We have a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (Mrs Kerrie Burnell) and Learning Mentor (Mrs Sarah Hawkes). Together we make sure that appropriate access to the curriculum is available for all children. 


As well as supporting children we also want to support parents who have inclusion needs and parents who have children with additional needs. As a result, this page is designed to give parents/carers access to any of the information you may require regarding additional needs provision at Blagdon Primary School.



How will I raise concerns if I need to?

Talk to us: contact your child’s class teacher or the SENCO.

We pride ourselves on building positive relationships with parents. We are open and honest with parents and hope that they are able to do the same with us.


What do I do if I don’t feel my concerns are being listened to?

Educating your child is about developing strong relationships which need to be honest and as open as possible. The person to share your concerns with initially is your child’s class teacher. At some point you or your child’s teacher may wish to involve the SENCO. If you are still concerned, as a parent or carer you have the right to use the school’s complaint process.
