(Special Educational Needs and Disability)

We are an inclusive school, which strives to ensure that all pupils achieve their potential regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs.

During a child’s life they may find that they need extra help with their learning. When we give children some extra help we might put them on a special register. This is called the Special Educational Needs Register. Sometimes this is just for a short period of time, sometimes it is longer. At Todmorden CE School we try very hard to make sure that every child achieves as well as they are able. We will offer your child some extra help, which we think that they need at the moment, through carefully planned intervention and resourcing. Their work will be carefully planned and you will be invited in to help us with this planning.

We keep families informed about their child's progress and development. Your child’s progress will be shared with you at our parent’s evenings but you will also be invited into school to plan and review their ILDP (Individual Learning and Development Plan).
