All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible. The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.
At St Luke's CE (A) Primary School, we embrace the fact that every child is different, and, therefore, the educational needs of every child is different; this is certainly the case for children with Special Educational Needs. Our SENCo is Mrs Carol Bannister (Assistant Headteacher) and she is supported by our Asst SENCo, Mrs Vicky Bryan. We have very strong links with the SEND team at the Local Authority, as we work with the Educational Psychology service, the SEND support teachers, the Outreach team and also, Special Needs Early Years team. Mrs Bannister and Mrs Bryan also meet regularly with the other SENCOs in our local schools to discuss strategies and how we can work together as schools to address the needs of the SEND pupils in our schools.

This report offers information for parents, which helps them to understand what services they and their family can expect from a range of local agencies - including their statutory entitlements.
The Wolverhampton Local Offer sets out all services available to support children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities, from birth to 25 years, and their families.
