Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

A very warm welcome to SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) at Tarporley CE Primary School.

About our school

At Tarporley we believe in a partnership between school and home that supports and helps, the learning difficulties or barriers that our children may encounter in their academic and personal and social development.  Our broad and balanced curriculum, and extra- curricular opportunities foster the development of the ‘whole child’, including their well-being, encouraging confidence, resilience, and a love of learning.  We believe that all children can learn and endeavour to support them in an inclusive and nurturing environment, so that they flourish, achieve their potential and are able to ‘Let their Light Shine.’ (Matthew 5:16)

All of our children and staff are encouraged to show Bravery, are Outward facing, embrace Opportunities as they acquired both Knowledge and Skills and enhanced this through their Spirituality (BOOKS approach) as they 'Let their Light Shine' brightly.

Here is a quote from one of our children:

What could be better at school?  It’s just perfect!’

We value all God's children - We are committed to an education that enables children to live life in all its fullness and fulfils the words of
Jesus in John 10:10:“I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly.”

What to do if you are concerned about your child. 

At Tarporley CE we believe communication is essential and if you are worried about your child in anyway, please make an appointment with the class teacher to discuss your concern. We always have an 'open door' policy to listen to and support all our families.  Should the class teacher need advice on matters raised, they will speak to the SENDCo and a meeting between the class teacher, SENDCo and yourself may be arranged to discuss further actions.

If you would like to speak to the either the SENDCo or SEND governor, they can be contacted directly or through the school office at: or Telephone 01829 708188
