Supporting Children with SEND

At Carleton Rode CEVA Primary School we recognise that every child is unique and special.

Within our rich and varied curriculum, every child is given opportunities and support, in a safe, caring environment, to facilitate their chances of reaching the highest possible standards. All staff are committed to meeting the needs of all our children and strive to break down any barriers that are preventing children from making the progress they are capable of. As a school, we recognise the importance of not only supporting children’s academic progress but also developing their behavioural, emotional and social skills to enable them to become confident, independent learners.

The following documents will give you more information in relation to SEND and how school and home can support children. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss SEND at our school, please do not hesitate to contact us.

This website has information about the support available for all families with children under 5. Parents can refer themselves to Home Start. Home Start can arrange for a volunteer to come to your home and provide support and advice. Home Start also arrange activities, trips and events for families.


At Carleton Rode Primary School we are proud of the support we provide our pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs. We are part of a cluster of schools who assess pupils and deliver tailored support using the Compass (Creating Opportunities to Maximise Personal and Social Skills) programme.

A whole school screening tool is used by class teachers to identify pupils who may benefit from specific Compass intervention in one or more of the following key areas:

  • self esteem
  • behaviour
  • social skills
  • resilience
  • self-efficacy
  • emotional awareness

This assessment data is used by the Compass intervention lead/SENCo to plan sessions for individuals or groups of pupils. In order that sessions can be tailored to best suit the needs of the pupils, parents/carer views are also sought by a questionnaire.

If you feel that your child may require some additional support, then please let us know.
