SEND at Cambrai
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES
“The most vulnerable deserve our best.”
At Cambrai Primary School, provision for children with additional needs is at the very heart of the ethos of our school. Our statement of equality is simple; we strive to ensure all children achieve their best, irrespective of gender, race, need or background. All children can ‘be their best’.
Special Educational Needs and / or a Disability can affect many children throughout their school career and beyond. Whilst disabilities generally affect children long term, not all SEN difficulties should be seen as ‘Life Long’. SEND is seen by our school as the child requiring provision that is additional to, or different from the rest of the class. For example they may have additional needs due to dyslexia, coordination problems, number understanding, significant sight problems – the list is endless and every child is unique – however a carefully planned approach is needed, additional to high quality class teaching in order for these children to achieve as well as they can.
Our school has a variety of key policies which directly impact upon our provision for children with SEND, which are all available as part of our school website, and include:
SEND and Inclusion Policy (click here)
Admission Arrangements (click here)
Anti Bullying (click here)
Equalities Objectives (click here)

The School's SEND Information Report is a valuable source of information for parents in relation to SEND. This report details our ethos, processes and provision for SEND, including who to contact if you have a question, query or complaint. Of course, our door is always open - so please speak with us if you ever need to.
New School Story
If your child is joining us and would benefit from a 'Social Story' book all about our school, please download one here. We can always post you one too, if you contact us. They can really help children who are a little anxious about a new school. If your child is joining us at a time other than reception - get in touch and we can send specific year group stories.
The School's Accessibility Plan
Schools have a legal duty to carry out accessibility planning for disabled pupils. We are fortunate to be located in a beautiful new building, which is fully compliant with Disability Discrimination Act 2015 regulations - but accessibility goes beyond the physical space of a school.
Our school’s accessibility plans are aimed at:
Increasing the extent to which disabled pupils can participate in the curriculum
Improving the physical environment of schools to enable disabled pupils to take better advantage of education, benefits, facilities and services provided, and
Improving the availability of accessible information to disabled pupils
Please take a look at our full plan, below.
The 'Local Offer'
Schools are only part of the 'Local Offer' that local areas must provide for children with SEND needs. Follow the link below to see how NYCC are coordinating this offer, the services they provide and information to support families across the region.
