Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
At Haughton St Giles Primary Academy we recognise that everyone is unique and each of us has our own individual needs. All who work and are associated with the Academy believe that all children have an equal right to a full and rounded education which will enable them to achieve their full potential. If you have any question regarding Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) please contact Mrs Linda Alliband our Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCO).
Staffordshire SEND Local Offer
New law says that every Local Authority is responsible for writing a Local Offer and ensuring it is accessible to everyone. A Local
Offer gives children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and their families information about what support services are available in the local area. Staffordshire’s Local Offer aims to provide information on what services you can expect from local agencies including education, health and social care. Staffordshire’s Local Offer can be found via the link below:
