At Headley Park Primary School, we believe all children can succeed. Our curriculum is designed to give our children the tools and provision to know more, do more and remember more.
If you have any questions about special educational needs, please read the SEND Information Sheet and Bristol City Council Local Offer. If you need any support, please contact our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator, Mrs Jessica Swain or the Assistant SENDCO Mrs Allison Elson by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cathedral Schools Trust SEND policy can be found on the policies page of this website. The Cathedral Schools Trust Equal Opportunities Policy can also be found on the policies page, alongside our Equalities Statement.
Bristol Local Offer:
The Local Offer website provides a wealth of information for families and professionals.
The document Ordinarily Available Provision gives details for parents/carers and professionals about resources that the local authority expects to be made available for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities in mainstream educational settings in Bristol. As an inclusive school, we aim to work with parents and carers to provide the best opportunities for all children. The Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice underpins our provision.
Bristol City Council have published their Bristol Local Area SEND Written Statement of Action in response to the Ofsted/Care Quality Commission (CQC) Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) inspection which took place in our local area at the end of 2019. It is a transparent, formal framework for improving SEND provision with our city.
Ofsted requires that the Written Statement of Action is available to parents, carers, children and young people so they understand the actions being taken to improve the effectiveness of the local area in identifying and meeting needs, and improving outcomes for children and young people who have SEND.

Where a parent/carer has a concern about the SEND provision that is being made, this should first be addressed by contacting the SENDCo, Jessica Swain. Every effort will be made to ensure a response is received within 5 working days. If the matter is not satisfactorily resolved, the CST complains procedure should be followed (see policies page).
