SEND Provision

We endeavor to empower students
to aspire to succeed and to aim high in all that they do

We pride ourselves on the SEN support that we offer to our students. We have a dedicated team of staff based in the Learning Base, who provide a fantastic range of support to students.


Saddleworth School is a fully inclusive school. We ensure that all pupils achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically, in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs). We strive for an education for all pupils, that enables them to be creative, inquisitive, compassionate and successful young people, through a curriculum that is rich, exciting, innovative and varied.

This document is intended to give families general information regarding the ways in which we support our pupils with Special Educational Need / Disabilities (SEND) to reach their potential. The strategies, resources and support explained are continually developed and our provision modified to provide for the changing requirements of individuals. We embrace the fact that every child is unique and therefore will receive provision and support to reflect their individual needs.

A child or young person has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she: has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools. 

When a student is identified as having SEND, we use specific needs based plans, pupil profiles and resources which help support their development, address areas of concern and increase progress. The school has developed a dedicated SEND and Student Support Team with a variety of skills and knowledge to support your child.

The School SENCO is Mrs C Pounder

Senior Member of staff with responsibility for SEND is Mr D Casey- Assistant Head Teacher

Governor responsible for SEN is Mrs H Duncan

In addition to the SEND Coordinator (SENDCO) this team consists of; a Deputy SENCO, a team of Higher Level Teaching Assistants and Teaching Assistants. The SEND team also links closely with Pastoral teams and school health to provide further pastoral and medical support.
