William Byrd Primary Academy


Ms Hudson is the school’s SENDCo and is responsible for Inclusion and SEND.

At William Byrd Primary Academy, we support students with learning difficulties and emotional needs to allow them to achieve their full potential. We identify barriers to learning and implement interventions to support students’ learning and wellbeing.

The concerns regarding students raised by members of staff or parents are further investigated by a class teacher liaising with the senior leadership team.

Following recommendations outlined in The Every Child Matters policy, the school ensures that the five outcomes are embedded in our daily practise. We ensure that pupils attending our school have support to:

  • be healthy
  • stay safe
  • enjoy and achieve
  • make a positive contribution
  • achieve economic well-being

We believe that children should be offered full access to a broad and balanced curriculum to enable them to become valuable citizens. We also ensure that all staff are aware of the needs of individual children and receive up-to date information and training wherever necessary.
