Children with special educational needs (SEND)

1. Primary schools

Primary Schools always endeavour to meet the needs of individual children and most will find their needs can be met within a mainstream school.

Some children however may have additional needs which require additional support; for example when children have a learning difficulty or a disability that means they find it harder to learn than other children in their age group.

Children have a range of needs, including physical or sensory difficulties, language difficulties and emotional/behavioural difficulties.

The network of services that work with schools in Stockport means that each child's needs can be addressed with additional support to overcome the barriers they face.

All schools have a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) who can help you with any concerns during your child's school career.

If you would like any information or advice about special educational provision, please email sen@stockport.gov.uk or call 0161 474 2525.

Stockport has a website called the Local Offer, hosting information, advice and support for children and young people with Special Educational Needs age 0-25 and their families.

You can find out more about the service and how to get in touch on the Local Offer website.
