A message from our SENDCO...
Hello! My name is Ashley Wagstaff and I am lucky enough to be SENDCO here at Stapleford Community Primary School. I completed my National Award for SEND in 2009 and have recently completed the Advanced SENDCO Award in 2020.
At Stapleford we pride ourselves on working together to create an inclusive learning environment for all our children to ensure they get every opportunity to succeed and thrive.
We pride ourselves on recognising children as individuals so are creative in our approach to supporting them whilst keeping their voice, aspirations and wishes at the heart of their support.
Our staff receive high quality information and bespoke training needed to support our children, they then make it priority to implement this into the classroom.
We aim to quickly identify pupils who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs and close gaps. We provide you as parents/carers with information about our SEND processes and procedures, as well as ensure you are informed of your child's learning at regular points throughout the year. We work alongside the Local Authority and Health Professionals to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.
The following documents will give you more information in relation to SEND and how school and home can work together to support our children. If you have any questions relating to your child, please speak to their class teacher initially. However, if you would like to arrange a phone call or meeting with myself following discussions with the class teacher, please contact the school office on 01223 508720 to book an appointment or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
My working days are Thursdays and Fridays.

The 4 Broad Areas of Need
We work closely with external professionals and meet regularly with a member of the Speech and Language team and SEND Specialist Services. Thanks to their input, we have a variety of strategies to support those children at the beginning of their learning journey with us, whether this be in our Nursery and Reception classes, or when joining our school.
