SEND booklet for parents

In New York Primary School we have designated people to lead and support within certain aspects of inclusions. ​

Mrs Jade Potter (SENCO)
My job within school is to ensure the needs of all children are met, particularly those with special education needs and disabilities. I am here to support children, parents and staff; and ensure appropriate training and guidance is provided. I am a lead SENCO for North Tyneside Local Authority.

Mrs Jackie Wilbraham (Pastoral Care)

As learning mentor my aim is to make sure children have a happy and safe time at school. During school hours I am available to all parents for support and guidance.

SEND – Context 2016/ 2017

In 2016/17 there were 45 pupils on the SEND register.
1 pupil had a statement and 3 pupils had an Education Health and Care Plan (8.9%).
78% of the SEN pupils were boys and 22% of the SEN children were girls.
5.8% of the pupils do not have English as a first language. These children receive support from EMTAS once a week, as well as in class support, visual aids, preparation time and English intervention.
37.7 % of the pupils were on the speech and language case load and are receiving support within school.
28.8 % of the pupils were on the Language and Communication Team caseload and receiving support within school.
13.3% of the pupils were assessed by the Educational Psychologist. Some were assessed to help support review paperwork sent to the Statutory Assessment Team and some were assessed in order to support learning strategies within school. All paperwork was discussed in meetings with parents and teachers to ensure the strategies listed were immediately put into place.
15.5% of SEND children were referred to Silverdale ARP outreach support and receive one to one support.


 Within the Early years 50% of the SEND pupils (2 children) achieved GLD (Good Level of Development), which is an increase of 17% on last year. It also exceeds the LA which is 27%.


In the phonics assessment 50% (1 child) of SEND pupils achieved the expected level, compared to 93% of non-SEND children.  This exceeds last year, which was 37% and also exceeds North Tyneside’s SEN data.
