Special Educational Needs And Disabilities (SEND)


Our SEND Information Report - which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer - provides details about how we support children and young people with Special Educational Needs in our school. Our SEND Information Report will provide details about how we implement our policy and practice to deliver high quality SEND provision for children and young people with SEND.


The SEND Information Report was reviewed and updated in January 2024.


Broom Cottages Primary and Nursery School values the contribution that every child can make and welcomes the diversity of all pupils. We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs and abilities. The school seeks to raise achievement, remove barriers to learning and increase physical and curricular access to all. All children with SEND and vulnerable groups are valued, respected and equal members of the school.

As such, provision for pupils with SEND is a matter for the school as a whole.

“All teachers are teachers of pupils with SEND”.

This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan.
