Miss Louise Hunt - Newcroft's Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo). Our Acting SENCo for the duration of Miss Hunt's maternity (from Easter 2021) is Miss Alice Brailsford.
Many children come to Newcroft with additional needs. For others, these needs become apparent over time. We recognise the need to provide additional support to these pupils and will do so in a sensitive and professional manner. All children have a right to learn. For some children this will be more difficult than for others. So, at Newcroft, we endeavor to make every effort to achieve maximum inclusion of all pupils whilst meeting pupils’ individual needs.
We believe that all children have rights to a full, enriching and enjoyable curriculum, irrespective of race, belief, gender, background or ability. We aim to meet each child’s requirements, making necessary adaptations and taking in to account their needs and wishes. We will consult with children, parents and outside agencies to help support our good practice. Strengths will be acknowledged as well as difficulties, so that adaptations may be made relevant to the individual child. We focus on individual progress as the main indicator of success.
Every child is valued. Every child is an individual with a personality, needs and interests. We believe in the right of children to feel safe and to enjoy their school experience – thus developing the whole child, academically, socially, physically, morally, emotionally and spiritually.
High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will meet the individual needs of the majority of children and young people. Some children and young people need educational provision that is additional to or different from this. This is special educational provision under Section 21 of the Children and Families Act 2014.
SEN Code of Practice
The school aims to work in partnership with parents and carers. We do so by:
We update our SEND policy and local offer annually, in September each year. We ask for parents to share their views about our SEND provision and ways that it may be improved during this period, so that we can review and action possible changes to improve outcomes for our children. All parents, not just those whose children are on the SEND register, are welcome to comment. Our consultation for 2021-22 is now closed. We welcome feedback at any time. Please contact our SENCo.
You will find our SEND Policy under our statutory policies area of the website.
Each year, we write a SEND Local Offer Report which tells parents and stakeholders all about our provision and outcomes for pupils. This is a more personalised offer for our school. Here you will find our Trust SEND offer.

In response to our parents' consultation, we have developed a SEN Padlet to support families in accessing resources and services linked to each area of need. Please scroll right to see all of the areas of need.
We also have a SEN section in our Learning Hub, to support our families with home learning and in completing homework and other school projects.
