Special Educational Needs and Disability Information




The Inclusion Leader at Longfleet is Mrs Sue Eden. Appointments to see Mrs Eden can be made in person, by phone or e-mail via the contacts for the school office.


The SENCo at Longfleet is Mrs Sophie Steckiewicz.  Mrs Steckiweicz is currently on maternity leave, therefore please contact Mrs Eden in her absence. 


Children with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) are sometimes identified before they start school. Others are initially identified by assessments carried out by school staff before being placed on the Special Educational Needs and Disability Register.

Following guidance set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice, children are set individual targets. Teachers will then outline all the provision the child has to help them meet these targets and this provision is identified on a provision map. Their progress is then tracked throughout the school and support from other agencies will be requested if needed. Depending on their level of need children can be on the SEND register for a short while whilst they receive some intervention or throughout their schooling. Parents will be kept informed and consulted regarding any decisions relating to their child by the child's class teacher and/or Inclusion Leader (SENCo).
