What support will there be for the overall well-being of a child with SEND?

This is an area that the management and the staff at Handale Primary School are very proud of. The school has been recognised for the high quality of pastoral care it provides and for the superb behaviour of our pupils.

The teachers at Handale Primary School ensure that a child’s emotional well-being is always at the forefront of their practise. A child cannot be expected to learn effectively if they are not emotional healthy. The teachers are supported by a range of staff who have daily contact with the pupils, from the teaching assistants in each class to the lunchtime supervisors and office staff. Indeed the responsibility for ensuring each child is happy at school extends to every member of the school community from the Headteacher to the Caretaker.

Handale Primary School employs a learning mentor to provide additional support for pupils. The learning mentor delivers programmes of support including anger management, anti-bullying, self confidence, mentoring and parental support. The school can also call upon the specialist advice and guidance of many outside agencies to support the work of the teachers and learning mentor.

The school works in partnership with its parents/carers to ensure issues such as medical care and social support do not become a barrier to a child’s learning.
