Welcome to Lostock Gralam's SEND Information Report
All schools have a duty to publish information on their websites about the implementation of the policy for supporting children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND).
This page outlines how you as parents can gain further information about how our school provides for children with SEND, as well as offering information about how our staff members identify children with additional learning needs, and how parents are involved in this process.
Lostock Gralam is a mainstream primary school with 7 classes. We are an inclusive school that welcomes and celebrates diversity. We recognise that all children have different and diverse learning needs, so we tailor all our learning opportunities to meet the needs of individual children. We have a bespoke curriculum which places the interests of the children at the heart of their learning. We use child-led questions to drive out learning forward. All staff believe that having high self esteem is crucial to a child’s emotional well-being and academic progress. We have a caring, understanding team who look after all of our children, including those with special educational needs.
Lostock Gralam has a designated coordinator who coordinates provision for SEND in our school, and is a main point of contact for parents and specialist agencies. This role is known as SENDCo and is carried out by Mrs. Geraldine O'Marah
Our Governing Body have appointed Mrs Donna North to be the governor responsible for overseeing SEND provision in our school. She and Mrs. O'Marah work closely together to ensure policies are working effectively to support learners in our school.
Lostock Gralam Church of England Primary School is part of Cheshire West and Chester's Local Offer.
Our school follows statutory guidelines for identifying and supporting SEND AS set out by the Department for Education. A guide is available for Parents and Carers wishing to find out more about Special Educational Needs provided by the Department for Education. It can be found by clicking here.
