Special Educational Needs (SEN)                                        

School SENDCo is Mrs Lydia Leeson


All children are different - this is a fact that we embrace at Barwell Infant School.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school, catering for the needs of all our pupils and we encourage every child to 'be the best that we can be!'


As with all schools, some of our children will be assessed as having Special Educational Needs (SEN).  This term covers a wide range of circumstances; including physical or sensory difficulties, specific or general learning difficulties and emotional or behavioural difficulties. 


Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Mrs Ruanne.  If you have a concern about your child, the first thing to do is speak to your child's teacher.  Similarly, if your child's teacher has a concern, they will speak to you.  If the SENCO feels that your child does have SEN, a personalised plan will be put in place to give them additional help and support; and you will be encouraged to be fully involved in this process.

The Leicestershire 'Local Offer'

Across the country, councils are reforming how special needs assessments are carried out and how support is designed; following the introduction of the Children and Families Act 2014.


The move is designed to ensure that children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities and their families are fully involved in decisions about their support and what they want to achieve.
