Rolleston Primary School is committed to inclusion. The school aims to provide an appropriate and high quality education for all children living in our local communities. We believe that all children have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. This will be readily accessible to them and they will be fully included in all aspects of school life.
We believe that inclusion is essential in ensuring the equality of opportunity for all learners whatever their age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, attainment and background. This demonstrates our commitment to valuing the diversity of the school community.
It is accepted that many children will experience some form of difficulty at some time in their education. At Rolleston Primary School, we aim to match the children's needs with appropriate support. Help may be given in a variety of ways, ranging from high quality whole class teaching, intensive small group work or one to one support. All children requiring support which is additional to or different from that which is normally provided, have their needs recorded and their progress monitored.
The school works closely with the Local Authority and other agencies to help ensure the needs of all pupils are met.
These pages set out information about our provision for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN). They are updated annually.
Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Mrs Annie Carter and the SEN Support is Miss Nicola Taylor. They can be contacted on 0116 2782300.
Our governor with responsibility for SEN is Mrs Karen Lambert.

We are working hard to understand how to meet the needs of everyone at Rolleston
The report prepared by the school under section 317(5)(a) of EA 1996 (duties of governing bodies in relation to special educational needs).
We are aiming to achieve an award for our Special Educational Needs and Disability provision in school: the SEND Inclusion Award.
In order to evaluate what we are providing, and to decide on how to plan for improvements, we are asking for your input. As parents or carers of a pupil who has received additional support, your views are important in helping us to understand what we are doing well and how we can do better.
We hope you will spend a few minutes completing the Parent Evaluation Form that you were given at Parents Evening in October. We ask that you answer the questions based on your own experience and that of your child.
If you would like to discuss the Parent Evaluation Form or get help with completing it, please contact the SENCO, Annie Carter, through the school office.
All your thought and ideas will be appreciated.
