Special Educational Needs

At Fell Dyke we are committed to ensure that every child achieves the best possible outcomes regardless of their ethnicity, gender, cultural background or learning need.

Our practices and procedures are embedded into school life to ensure pupils’ special educational needs are identified swiftly. We consider each of the pupils when planning and provide a curriculum which is accessible to all, whatever their individual needs. We acknowledge that some pupils require additional support to ensure access to a full curriculum and, where appropriate, a range of support strategies, including personalised curriculums, are implemented.

If additional specialist advice and support is necessary, we seek external agency support such as speech and language therapists, school nurse and educational psychologists. We are committed to effective collaboration between all agencies working with a child and a multi-disciplinary approach to meeting pupils’ special educational needs. All staff at Fell Dyke are provided with training and support to develop and refine good practice when working with SEND pupils.


Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs A Henderson.

She can be contacted via telephone on 0191 433 4111 and email felldykecommunityprimaryschool@gateshead.gov.uk
