Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Here at Mosscroft Primary School we strive to be a school that is as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils’ with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are defined as:

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
  • Sensory and Physical Needs

Mosscroft Primary School endeavours to ensure that no pupil with special educational needs and disabilities is the subject of discrimination. All pupils, including those with SEND, follow the same Admission Arrangements (see Admission Policy). The Governors consider that our admission criteria should not discriminate against pupils with SEND pupils and should recognise the spirit of the SEN Code of Practice.

Our school SENCo, Miss Connor is responsible for the co-ordination of SEND provision across the whole school, from EYFS to Year 6.  Miss Connor currently teaches Year 6 and can be contacted via the school office on 0151-477-8190.


From the 1st September 2014 all schools are required to publish an SEN Information Report on their school website.  This report contains SEN information and informs parents/carers about how Mosscroft Primary school will meet the needs of all pupils, including SEND pupils.
