Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Inclusion

Percy Main Primary School is committed to providing an inclusive and supportive environment where all students, regardless of their abilities or disabilities, can thrive and reach their full potential.

We will endeavour to use our resources to provide appropriate support to children with SEND, thus enabling all children to obtain maximum benefit from the full school curriculum.

We support pupils with special educational needs and disabilities guided by the North Tyneside local offer.   

The Local Offer provides information for children and young people (from birth to 25 years) with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) and their families.
