Guildford Grove Primary School and Nursery

A culture of achievement where all can succeed


Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

Welcome to Guildford Grove’s Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) page.


At Guildford Grove Primary School and Children’s Centre all children, regardless of their particular needs, are provided with inclusive teaching and provision which will enable them to make the best possible progress in their development and feel that they are a valued member of the wider community.

Our aims:


  • We aim for all pupils with SEND to meet or exceed the high expectations set for them based on their age and starting points.
  • We strive to give children with SEND the support they need.
  • We will set ambitious outcomes (educational and other) for children following discussion with the family and the child.
  • We want all children to become confident individuals who will be able to make a successful transition on to the next phase of their educational journey and into adulthood.

We believe that all children learn best with the rest of their class or peer group. Our aim is for all children to work independently in class and work cooperatively in group sessions.  We try to make new learning within finger-tip reach of the child as well as allow time for over-learning and consolidation.
