At Stokesley Primary Academy we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school and striving to meet the needs of all children. Our aim is to identify at the earliest possible time children's special educational needs and to meet these needs in the best possible way.

We seek to ensure that pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities are fully included in all aspects of school life. We believe that pupils with SEN and their parents/ carers should be at the heart of understanding, planning and decisions making. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils with SEN and their parents/ carers to play an active role in planning their provision in accordance with the SEND Code of Practice 2014. 

Our SENDCo is Mrs Louise Challenger 
 
You will be invited in for regular reviews of your child’s progress and attainment, however Mrs Challenger is available to talk to either by email (l.challenger@stokesleypa.org.uk) telephone (01642 711071) or by arranging a meeting that fits around your commitments.
