At Stanningley Primary School we are proud to be recognised as an inclusive, nurturing school where every child matters. We adhere to the SEND Regulations of 2014, the SEND Code of Practice and the Equalities Act of 2010 in everything that we do. Our staff include all SEND children in their vision and aspirations and we have a strong belief that wherever possible, every pupil must have access to all aspects of school life. As a result of this, pupils with SEND receive very effective provision and achieve extremely well.           
At Stanningley, staff are very good at quickly identifying pupils who may have special educational needs, monitoring and observing, discussing with families and seeking the appropriate support to help us to meet the pupils' social and emotional needs as well as their academic needs. 

We closely monitor all children to ensure every child is challenged and makes progress at their level in a happy, safe and secure environment. Teaching staff plan, scaffold and skillfully adapt our lively, broad and balanced curriculum so that every child can be successful. We believe that ALL children at at Stanningley Primary School, including the children with SEND thrive in our care and have participated fully in the life of the school - in the curriculum, in extra-curricular activities, in concerts, trips & visits and on school residentials.

All of our staff support individuals and groups of children where necessary, to ensure the children are able to participate and achieve well. 

We partner with Bramley Cluster Children and Family Services and all local agencies that work with children and families in the Bramley area. We are all committed to working with families to put in place the right support when and where support is needed.  Through this partnership working we gain access to many services such as speech and language therapy and core therapeutics such as Counselling and Art therapy.
