SEND information

Welcome to Mapplewell Primary School’s Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) information page. We hope the information provided here will help you to understand the variety of ways in which we are able to support your child to succeed in their education and make a successful transition to their next phase of education.


We are an inclusive school that celebrates diversity and believes that all children should be valued and treated with respect. We have a strong focus on high aspirations and improving outcomes for all our pupils. As a school we use our best endeavours to ensure that the provision for all our pupils is of the highest possible standard, whilst acknowledging that we are continually striving to improve our practice.


We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between children with SEND and their non-SEND peers. Our Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCO) Miss Walker, our SEND Governor Mrs J Bouchouat, and all our dedicated staff work hard to achieve this, paying due regard to all relevant legislation and guidance including; the SEND Code of Practice (2015), the Equality Act (2010) and the Children and Families Act (2014).
