Special Educational Needs

Miss Reid is our Acting SENCo in charge of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to contact her or make an appointment by phone on 01484 431700 or by emailing the school at office.almondburyinf@kirkleeseducation.uk

We have added some supporting resources for those who may want some additional support for their children with Special Educational Needs, for example Speech, Language and Communication, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional, Mental Health (SEMH) and Well-being and Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC). We want to ensure that children are supported as much as possible during this difficult time. The SEMH activities are also suitable for any child that may be finding this time at home especially difficult or suffering with anxiety.

The Local Offer: what does it mean for schools?

What is the Kirklees Local Offer?

The Local Offer has been developed as part of the new Children and Families Act. It aims to provide information on education, health and social care provision available for disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs, in a way that can be accessed quickly and easily.

Who is producing the Local Offer?

Kirklees Council is working with parents, carers, young people, schools, colleges, Early Years providers and health services to produce the Local Offer.

What information do schools provide?

Schools have a duty to provide information about special educational needs that is accessible to pupils, parents and carers. We need to make sure this information is kept up to date.

All Hallows C.E. (VA) Primary School’s SEN Information Report can be found here. 

Our school's Policy for Special Educational Needs can be found here.



Our Accessibility Statement can be found here.
Our Disability Access Plan here.


Where can I find the Kirklees Local Offer?

The Kirklees Local offer can be found at www.kirkleeslocaloffer.org.uk

This is a work in progress. Kirklees Council and partners are working hard to create a local offer that includes links to all relevant information that Kirklees residents would find useful. If you have any suggestions or improvements or ideas about that might help you, please email csa.admin@kirklees.gov.uk
