Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Leaders use additional funding for pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities effectively to provide individualised support that is highly responsive to pupils’ needs, not only academically but personally and socially. These pupils make at least good progress from their starting points.

Christ Church CE Primary School is a caring, nurturing Christian community. We are committed to giving all children every opportunity to reach their full potential in all areas of the curriculum regardless of their individual needs. We recognise that every child has unique characteristics, interests, abilities and learning needs and that some children may need additional help, support and intervention if they are to achieve their full potential.
At Christ Church we endeavour to meet the needs of each individual child. All staff are committed to supporting children through their education. We strive to ensure children identified as having special educational needs or being part of a vulnerable group, have access to a broad and balanced curriculum and are fully included within the school community.
We provide support for children across the 4 areas of need, as laid out in the SEN Code of Practice 2014:
- Communication and Interaction
- Cognition and Learning
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
- Sensory and or Physical Needs

SEND Information Report
Our SEND Information Report offers information for parents and carers, in a single place, which helps them to understand what services they and their family can expect from a range of local agencies - including their statutory entitlements.
The changes in the Children and Families Bill affected the way children with Special Educational Needs and /or Disabilities (SEND) are supported in schools. This approached commenced from September 2014 and places the child at the centre of planning.

Wirral Local Offer
The Children and Families Bill requires Wirral to publish, and keep under review, information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities aged 0 - 25.
This is called the Local Offer and its aims are:
- To improve choice and transparency for families
- To provide an important resource for professionals in understanding the range of services and provision in a local area
- To inform the joint commissioning process for children and young people with SEND by setting out in a single place what is available locally
