SEN (Special Educational Needs)

Parents can contact the school Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) who is Mrs Natalie Gable via the school office on 01376 512201 or through admin@chippinghill.essex.sch.uk


At Chipping Hill Primary School we aim to offer excellence and choice to all our children, whatever their ability or needs. We have high expectations of all our children and we aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation. We want our children to feel that they are a valued part of our school community.

Almost all children experience difficulty at some time in their school career, albeit at different levels. The difficulties may be learning, behavioural, emotional/social, speech and language, medical or physical. Children may have already experienced difficulties prior to starting school although it may manifest itself at any time. A child is considered to have Special Educational Needs where their learning or disability calls for special educational provision, that is provision different from or additional to that normally available to pupils of the same age. All children need different levels of support at different times and as a whole school we work together to identify the individual needs of each pupil and decide on the best course of action at any given time.

We see parents and carers as partners in the process of the education and development of their child and believe that working together will have the greatest impact on a child’s education. Children need to have the support of both their teachers and their parents in celebrating their achievements.

Our School Information Report explains how we can support you and your child whilst they attend our school.
