Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCO)
My name is Jacquie Poyser, the school SENDCo. I look after the provision for all the children with SEND at school. I work with parents, children, staff and external agencies to ensure that all children with SEND are being supported and having any additional needs met.
It’s been an exciting time for Yorkswood Primary School and SEND as we successfully achieved the SENDIA award, highlighting the provision and support with give our children with SEND!

What are Special Educational Needs?
A child or young person has special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A learning difficulty or disability is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age. Special educational provision means educational or training provision that is additional to, or different from, that made generally for others of the same age in a mainstream setting in England…. Health care provision or social care provision which educates or trains a child or young person is to be treated as special educational provision.
