Staining CE Primary School has a SEND Team, dedicated to ensuring that our SEND offer meets the needs of our children.  The school SENDCo is Mrs Suzanne Shrewsbury, and she can be contacted by email at  We also have Miss Chaimaine McCloy and Mrs Dawn Hayward working within this team.

Staining C of E Primary School is committed to inclusion.  We aim to provide a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties.  This does not mean that we will treat all learners in the same way, but that we will respond to learners in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs.

We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background.

You can find our SEND Policy, Information Report and Accessibility Plan on the ‘Policies and Procedures’ section of our school website.
