At Applegarth, we believe that all children have the right to an effective education in the setting of their choice. We are here to support families and children by providing an inclusive learning environment that meets the needs of every pupil whether they have a specific need or not.
The arrangement for the admission of disabled pupils can be found on our School Admissions Page.
We foster a strong partnership between the school and wider community whereby any issues relating to SEND are brought to the attention of a teacher, the SENDCo or head teacher so that we can work together to find solutions. Carefully considered involvement of external professionals promotes progress for learners with SEND and provides a support network for families. All cases are treated with respect and confidentiality whilst taking the pupil and family’s views into account throughout.
Our School SENDCo (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Co-ordinator) is Mr Steve Edwards. Our SEND Governor is Jill Pawluk.

Adaptive Teaching for Pupils with SEND
Our teachers and support staff are highly-skilled SEND leaders. They follow structured, evidence-based principles in order to maximise progress for pupils with SEND (and those with no additional needs too) in all areas of the curriculum. Subject leaders monitor the effectiveness and impact of teaching and learning for pupils with SEND using this framework. The Five-a-day Principle links closely with Rosenshine’s Principles which are applied to all subjects and for all pupils.
Whole School Provision Map
Our SENDCo has collaborated with leaders, teachers and support staff to produce a whole school provision map which is a comprehensive (and ever-evolving) reference resource to support staff in accessing prompt intervention and target setting for pupils with SEND as well as identifying pathways for cases where At a Glance (AAG) and Individual Provision Maps (IPMs) have not had the desired impact.
If you would like to discuss your child’s SEND requirements in more detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
SEND Local Offer
The local offer provides useful information for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their families. It is here to help families, individuals, groups and organisations find information, so you have more choice and control over what support is right.
