SEND and Inclusion

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school that continues to successfully support pupils with a range of special education and disability needs.

Our staff have a wealth of training and specialism and strive for a fully inclusive education which helps children to close the gaps. 

At Lanercost School we provide the following interventions:

  • Speech and Language;
  • Mastering Number;
  • Reading Intervention;
  • Maths Pre-Teach booster sessions;
  • Phonics catch up
  • Sessions with our Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA)

Alongside these, we have interventions from External Agencies.

  • Occupational Therapy - gross motor and fine motor skills;
  • 'C' Inside - emotional well-being coaching.
