Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
Pike Fold's Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) is Mrs Julie McKeever who can be contacted on 0161-702-3669 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Link Governor for SEN is Mrs Dharmila Khimani who can be contacted at email@example.com
If you have any concerns about your child's learning or progress, or think they may have a special educational need then please speak to the class teacher, who will then pass your concern onto the SENCo. Alternatively contact Mrs McKeever directly who will be happy to discuss any concerns.
Further information on how Pike Fold Primary will support your child can be found in our SEND Information Report. In addition our SEN Policy was adopted by the governors in October 2014 and is reviewed annually. Most recently September 2020.

Here at Pike Fold Primary School, we are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure the school can meet any needs appropriately.
Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan
Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school.
You continue to have the right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s SEN. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment following the review meeting.
