Primary SEND

Primary Phase SEND Coordinatior: Tracy Macfarlane

My name is Tracy Macfarlane and I am the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo) for the primary phase.  I am a qualified teacher and hold the National Award for SEN Co-ordination.

My aim, working in partnership with parents/carers and other professionals, is to ensure that any Special Educational Needs or Disabilities a child may have are identified and then to ensure that as a school we do everything possible to break down barriers to learning and meet their specific needs. 

The staff here are extremely proud of our inclusive learning environment and our broad and balanced curriculum which aims to bring out the best in all learners. If a need for extra support is identified, for most children this can be accommodated by changes in whole class provision or by time limited group or one to one interventions. Some children however will require different or additional provision and after discussions with parents/carers will be identified as having a Special Educational Need or Disability.  The Primary phase Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy can be found here 

You can also find information and resources on SEND on our Trust website here


If you have any concerns about your child the best place to start is by talking to their Class Teacher who will know your child well and will usually be able to help or will seek advice on how best to provide support. If you continue to have concerns I am happy to discuss these with you.  The best way to contact me in the first instance is by email:
