Welcome to the Special Educational Needs section of our website.

Miss Vine



Hello, I am Mrs White the school SENDCO (Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator). I work in the pastoral team with Miss Vine, who is our ELSA (Emotional, Literacy, Support- Assistant).


At Salisbury Road, our mission is to create a highly inclusive, happy, courageous and stimulating learning environment in which ALL members of the school community can grow in self-esteem and develop to their full potential.  


We are an inclusive school that embrace the fact that every child is unique and with different aspirations, therefore we appreciate that the educational needs of every child can vary. Even more so for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).


We believe the most important factor in raising educational outcomes, whatever a young person’s needs, is through high quality classroom teaching. Due to the inclusive systems available to all students at Salisbury Road, most students with additional needs will not require specialist SEN provision, as they are able to make progress whilst utilising whole school systems.  


At all times, parents’ co-operation and involvement in their child’s development is highly valued and considered essential if children are to realise their full potential.


The documents in this section should help to answer any questions you may have about SEN at Salisbury Road Primary School. If you have any questions then please contact us, we are happy to help and are enthusiastic about providing support.


Our door is always open. Please see the information below on how to contact our team:
