SEND and Inclusion

Mrs Hallisey is our SENDCo and Inclusion Leader

At Stoborough Primary, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school. Our vision statement expresses this perfectly, through the phrase;

'We are one family.' We really do all look out and care for one another, helping all our pupils reach their full potential.


It could be that your child enters Stoborough School with special educational needs or it may be through observation in the classroom, or through our rigorous tracking and screening, that your child's class teacher is the first one to bring this to your attention.


We provide support for our pupils with a number of special educational needs;

We work closely with The Purbeck Locality Team and our Educational Psychologist is Aysha Vanderman.


Our specialist teachers are Penny Bisping and Louise Young, who offer support to pupils displaying ASD, ADHD, attachment issues or sensory needs. They will also carry out in depth assessments and provide individualised programmes for pupils with SpLD, including dyslexia and dyscalculia.


We work with The Purbeck Early Help Hub, to provide support and advice for our families.


We also work closely with The Dorset Speech and Language Team and will offer support for children; following exercise programmes set by occupational health or physiotherapy.


Our well-trained and experienced team of teaching assistants offer expertise in many areas including ELSA (emotional literacy support), Learn to Move (motor skills development tracking) as well as speech and language development.


We see your child as an individual who is on their own educational journey. Whatever path this journey takes, we at Stoborough Primary, are there to support them in any way we can and are committed to high achievement for all.
