Mrs G Beetham is our SENDCo.


At Trawden Forest primary school we recognise that every child is unique and special.

With our rich and varied curriculum, every child is given opportunities and support in a safe, caring and stimulating environment, which should facilitate each child's chance to fulfil their potential. All staff are committed to meeting the needs of all our children and strive to break down any barriers that are preventing children from making the progress that they are capable of. As a school, we recognise the importance of not only supporting children's academic progress but also developing their behavioural, emotional and social skills to enable them to become confident, independent learners.  

All staff support children with SEND in school and receive regular information and training. We aim to quickly identify pupils who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We recognise that parents are the experts in their child’s unique situation and therefore we liaise closely with them on their child’s journey, discussing their child’s learning and well-being at regular points throughout the year.

We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, Health Professionals and specialist teachers in order to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.

The following documents will give you more information in relation to SEND and how school and home can support children. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss SEND at our school, please do not hesitate to contact me:
