Our SEN Information Report – which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer – provides details about how we support children and young people with Special Educational Needs in our school.

The SEN Information Report was reviewed and updated on November 2021.

At Annfield Plain Junior School we are a caring school where each child receives a high standard of education that is broad, challenging and full of opportunities to excite and motivate them in their learning.

We want children to embrace challenge, value achievement and strive to be the best they can be. At the heart of our vision is that we are a Rights Respecting school. We encourage all pupils to actively understand their rights and responsibilities within our school community and their local community.

Our school community believes that everyone has the right to achieve their full potential: socially, emotionally and academically. Therefore, we will work in partnership with our community to provide a safe, stimulating and challenging learning environment. The provision of quality learning and teaching is at the heart of our vision.

This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan.
