Special Educational Needs

At Swaffham CE Primary Academy we believe in quality learning opportunities for all.  We strive to ensure that every child meet their potential academically and socially, regardless of their needs and that no child is treated less favourably because of any additional needs.

This page will provide you with information about how we support pupils with Special Educational Needs at Swaffham Primary Academy. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss your child's needs, please contact our SENDCo, Mrs McCaghrey, via the School office.


Our SEN Information Report and Policy provide information on how we support children with SEN at Swaffham Primary Academy.  We have also included a link to Norfolk's Local Offer which provides information and resources surrounding supporting learners with Special Educational Needs.

'Just One Norfolk' is the ‘go to’ health website for Norfolk. https://www.justonenorfolk.nhs.uk/ 

You will find a huge range of information about aspects of physical, mental and emotional health for children and families.


There are four broad areas of Special Educational Needs which we identify in school as defined in the SEND Code of Practice (2015).  We acknowledge that children’s needs may fall into more than one category.

Social, Emotional and Mental Health

Cognition and Learning



Physical and/or Sensory

Communication and Interaction




We provide both in class support and out of class intervention for pupils who require extra support with their behaviour, emotional wellbeing or learning.

All staff provide quality first class teaching and differentiate work and classroom environments to best suit the needs of their pupils. We aim to keep up to date with current SEN knowledge and best practice through INSET and training for all staff.
