Special Educational Needs

We are proud to be an inclusive school at Murdishaw West Community Primary School. Through regular monitoring and assessments, we ensure we provide a secure, caring and happy environment in which all pupils can succeed. 

Once a specific need has been identified, an individual SEND support plan will be created that will show how the school will help your child. This plan incorporates advice from specialist agencies, where appropriate, and will consider the best way to deliver the support. For example, this may be a mixture of in class support, one to one work with an adult out of class, special arrangements made for breaktimes, time spent with a counsellor or the provision of special equipment. The plan is shared and discussed with both you and your child and copies are sent home.


The provision is reviewed regularly to ensure that it is achieving the desired outcomes. The plan is not fixed and can be adapted as your child’s needs develop and change over time. We encourage the children to evaluate the interventions we provide and we seek pupil views at key times to ensure they understand the support and begin to recognise how it is helping them.
