Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Dovecote Primary


In planning and teaching the National Curriculum, Dovecote Primary and Nursery School is committed to the inclusion of all pupils and to providing effective learning opportunities for all.


To meet this objective the school will follow the fundamental principles of the DfE SEN Code of Practice and also Routes to Inclusion (R2I) - a toolkit developed by Nottingham City Council to support schools to promote the inclusion of all children and young people.


Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Sarah Hudson.  Mrs Hudson recently joined Dovecote Primary School having previously worked in both primary and secondary schools in Nottingham and is experienced  SENCO.


Prior to a child coming into school Mrs Hudson and /or a member of the Senior Leadership Team will meet with parents/carers of individual children so they can discuss any additional needs which their child may have and the ways in which those needs can be effectively met.  The school can also access the advice and support of, the Nottingham City Autism Team, Educational Psychology Service and Inclusive Education Service should there be the need to do so.


We pride ourselves in being an extremely inclusive school at Dovecote Primary and Nursery School.


If you have  you would like to discuss any  additional needs your child has then please contact Mrs Hudson or Mrs Guy-Clark on 0115 915 2953.
