Special Educational Needs and Disability Information
In this section you will find information about how we meet the requirements for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
Inclusion is always a priority at Norwood Primary School. All staff and the Governing Body are highly committed to inclusion and the principles outlined in our SEN policy; working hard to ensure that provision is made for those who need it and that all children are given the opportunities to be the best they can be. We take pride in our pupils' engagement learning across the curriculum. We believe that much can be done to overcome difficulties that children may experience, by parents, teachers and pupils working together.
Mrs. Bennet, Deputy Head Teacher, is the Lead Teacher for Inclusion. She can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs. Brookfield is the school's SENDCo. She can be contacted on email@example.com

Aiming High for Disabled Children is there to make sure disabled children, young people and their families have the same access to fun, fulfilling activities and life chances as those without disabilities. We provide specially tailored sessions during term-time and holidays that young people can access and specialist support when our young people reach key 'transition points', such as moving from education into employment. In order to help us keep you up-to-date on services that are useful to you, you can register with our Disabled Children's Database at The Sefton Directory. Once registered you are also guaranteed a regular copy of the Aiming High for Disabled Children newsletter.
