SEND Information, Inclusion & School Accesibility Plan

We are a very inclusive school and work hard to make sure all children make progress throughout the school. Some children may need some support for their learning, emotional and behavioural needs. We work closely with specialist outside agencies, when this is appropriate.


We liaise very closely with parents, your child's previous school or preschool when a child with special needs starts at the school. If you have any concerns or would just like to talk through your child's individual needs, Mrs. Bailey our Inclusion Leader would be more than happy to arrange to meet at a convenient time. 


If you have any concerns over the SEND provision for your child in school, please do speak to Mrs Bailey (Inclusion Leader) in the first instance, and we will work with you to resolve any issues . Parents should refer to the complaints policy in the policy section on the website where any SEND concerns are not resolved.

School Accessibility Plan

At Bitterne Ce Primary School we work hard to ensure that every child and adult in school is treated equally regardless of any disability.  The School Accessibility Plan (copy available on the link below) set out the duty of the Governing Body to:

  • not treat disabled pupils less favourably for a reason related to their impairment;
  • make reasonable adjustments for disable pupils, so that they are not at a substantial disadvantage;
  • plan to increase access to education for disabled pupils.

The second document below is the school's Single Equality Policy.  It also includes our equality plan and this links with our termly Raising Achievement Plan (RAP).


If you are a parent and you have any questions related to your child's Special Educational Needs or Disability provision in school, please contact Mrs Bailey (Assistant Headteacher - Inclusion).
