General Statement

What does Special Educational Needs Mean?

A child with special educational needs or disability (SEND) has a learning difficulty or disability that makes it harder for them to learn.

 They may need extra help or work differentiated or scaffolded to enable them to access the curriculum.  Children may need extra support in different areas.  

These areas may be categorised as:

  • Communication and Interaction needs
  • Cognition and Learning needs
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties
  • Sensory and/or Physical needs

At King George V Primary, we provide a learning environment that enables all pupils to make the greatest possible progress and achieve their full potential in a caring, supportive and fully inclusive environment.


It is the SENCO’s role to ensure that the provision we provide for our children with SEND is the very best. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have specific questions about your child's needs.

Our SENDCo, Mrs S. Fletcher, can be contacted at enquiries@kinggeorgev.sandwell.sch.uk
