Special Educational Needs Provision


At High Legh Primary School, we value all children equally whatever the differences in their abilities or behaviours and believe that EVERY child is important. We work with children, parents and outside agencies to ensure that special needs are understood and appropriately supported. We also aim to ensure that our pupils at High Legh Primary School gain equal access to education through whatever provision may be necessary.

Our SENDCo is Mrs Caroline Dempsey cdempsey@highlegh.cheshire.sch.uk

We believe it is essential to identify additional needs as early as possible, so if you have any concerns please speak to your child’s class teacher, who will pass information to Mrs Dempsey; this appointment can be made via 01925 753713, or via email to your class teacher. 

 You can find our SEND Policy below.
