Samuel Barlow Primary Academy aims to support children with special educational needs and disability (SEND) by seeking to remove barriers to learning and participation, ensuring all pupils have access to an appropriate education that affords them the opportunity to achieve their personal potential.

The academy supports children in four main areas:

  • communication and interaction
  • cognition and learning
  • behaviour, emotional and social development
  • sensory and/or physical.

We work collaboratively with outside agencies ensuring specialist advice and provision supports effective teaching and learning.

What is the Local Offer?

The Children and Families Act require all local authorities to publish information about provision in their area for children and young people from 0-25 who have special educational needs and disability – a Local Offer.

The SEND Local Offer in Nottinghamshire aims to provide you with the information you may need, or want to know, about resources, services, support, activities and events for Nottinghamshire’s children and young people with SEND and their families.

You can find Nottinghamshire’s Local Offer here.
