Our SEN Information Report – which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer – provides details about how we support children and young people with Special Educational Needs in our school. Our SEN Information Report will provide details about how we implement our policy and practice to deliver high quality SEN provision for children and young people with SEN.
The SEN Information Report was reviewed and updated in November 2021.
Tanfield Lea Community School values the contribution that every child can make and welcomes the diversity of culture, religion and intellectual style. We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our children whatever their needs and abilities. The school seeks to raise achievement, remove barriers to learning and increase physical and curricular access to all. All children with SEND and vulnerable groups are valued, respected and equal members of the school.
As such, provision for children with SEND is a matter for the school as a whole.
“All teachers are teachers of pupils with SEND”.
This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan which can be found in the School Policies section of our website.

At Tanfield Lea Community Primary School we are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents to discuss any identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from outside agencies may be requested to ensure the school can meet any needs appropriately.
If you would like to discuss your child’s SEN in more detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment. For more information on the admission of pupils with a disability, please visit the School Admissions section of our website and view the Accessibility Plan in our School Policies section.
All our policies ensure that all children are treated equitably, including our anti-bullying policy. Discrimination of any kind is dealt with seriously and reported to the Local Authority.
