SEND Information

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Thorndon Primary School we value the abilities and achievements of all pupils. Our aim is to ensure that all children, whatever their needs or disability, make good progress throughout their school life. We work closely with parents and other agencies to ensure that the needs of each child are met.

In this section of the website you will find ‘Our School’s Offer’ which outlines the provision we make for our children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Further information on SEND provision from the local authority, Suffolk County Council, can be found by following the link below.​

How can parents/carers get involved?

Suffolk Parent Carers Network [SCPN] is represented in overseeing the implementation of the SEND Reforms. As a parent/carer please feel free to use the contact e-mail address for SCPN for any queries and or questions.

Disability access

The school doesn't have a car park and parking is either on street or in the church car park next door, however disabled drivers will be allowed to park out the front of the school for dropping off and collecting their children at the start and end of the school day.

The front entrance allows wheel chair access. Wide corridors and doorways cater for easy access and wheel chair users.

Please read our school’s Accessibility Plan for details.
