SEND/Inclusion

Our school motto is: Working together, aspire, succeed; growing a forest from each small seed.  We aim to work together with you to make sure that your child achieves their personal best while they are with us.  Together, with your support, we will work as a team to help your child reach their full potential. You know your child best and you may feel that they need some additional help or support for some or all of their time at school - we are here to ensure that we work with you to access additional support where required.

 

Our ‘SEN Information Report’  will inform you of the types of support offered and available for your child locally at Forest Hall Primary School.  It will help you understand who can help and how this support can be accessed and is available to read in the policy section below.

 

We have also included a link to North Tyneside Council’s Local offer which can give you further information about agencies available to support children with SEND needs in North Tyneside.  This offer is accurate now, but services are regularly reviewed and could change. 

 

 

What children say...

'I like going in a small group because I don't get embarrassed when I get it wrong and feel more confident speaking in a small group to give my answers.'

 

 

'When I had extra help it really helped me with my reading, I'm much better now'.

 

 

'I like getting help because I feel like it lets me get my ideas out.'

What parents say...

'My child has came on a lot over the year due to good teachers and extra support.'

 

 

'When my children started the school they were quite behind.  The teachers have spent a lot of extra time bringing them up to date and they have achieved well.'

 

 

'My child loves school. They are very supportive in areas that need a bit more help.  Fantastic school.'
