Arrangements for Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

In accordance with the SEND code of practice, it is anticipated that the majority of pupils with special educational needs will be able to have their needs met within their local mainstream school.

As a Sefton primary school we will meet our legal obligation to admit a pupil who has a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEND) that names the school in his or her EHCP.
