At Rogate CE Primary School we aim to support every child in our care in a way that enables them to achieve and progress well. For some children this will require additional support, different teaching strategies, differentiated work or specific resources. These pupils are referred to as a group as having SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities). Our SEND Co-ordinator is Mrs Stephanie Garwood.
As a school, we ensure that we identify the pupils that need this additional support early on in the school year and build an intervention timetable around the needs in the school. We also regularly discuss, as a staff, strategies and resources that we have found to be useful for individuals or groups, this allows the staff to continually build on their toolbox of techniques to ensure they are as well equipped as possible to support all our pupils.

The work that we do at school is supported by the Rother Valley Inclusion Hub (RVIH) which is a collaborative network of small rural schools and settings In our area. It aims to support parents who have children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to have successful placements in mainstream settings.
