As outlined in the SEND Code of Practice, 2014 all children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:

At Pallister Park Primary School we are committed to providing all children with quality education, appropriate to their individual needs. All children, whatever their ability, gender, ethnic origin, social background or disability, have access to a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum. Our school sets high expectations of all of pupils in all areas of school life.

Ofsted 2019 Statement;
“Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make effective progress from their starting points.”
Complaints about SEN provision
Initially, complaints should be discussed with the class teacher.
Depending on the outcome of the meeting the SENDCO should be informed or Head Teacher.
If no agreement can be arrived at the parent can then approach the school’s named governor with responsibility for the monitoring of the schools SEN policy. They would also be given the name of the LEA identified/nominated person who have been trained to help them deal with their problem, or the Parent Partnership Service.
It is hoped, however, that matters can be dealt with within the school domain.
