Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)

West Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) makes a ‘Local Offer’, outlining the provision available for SEND children and their parents.

Within this page, we have  provided resources and information for parents on SEN, SENCo and SEND. Resources for the latest ‘Local Offer’, our Inclusion Policy and our SEN Information Report can be found in the section to the right. Additionally a Glossary of Terms can be found towards the bottom of this page.

Who can I contact for further information?

The class teacher is the first point of contact but parents are also welcome to directly contact the Headteacher/SENCo. All contacts are initially made through the school office.

Mrs Helen Goulder (Headteacher & SENCo)head@croughton.northants-ecl.gov.uk
Mrs Kaye Green (School Business Manager)bursar@croughton.northants-ecl.gov.uk

If you are considering applying for a place at Croughton All Saints CE Primary School and your child has special educational needs or any concerns then the first action is to telephone the school and arrange an initial visit with the Headteacher/SENCo.
