Welcome to the Fulham Primary School Inclusion Page

At Fulham Primary School, all staff work to ensure that all pupils who have special educational needs or a disability are identified, and the appropriate support is provided. We have an inclusive culture, where children are welcomed and valued through their learning and personal achievements. We are committed to ensuring that all children have access to our broad and balance curriculum.

Here is a link to our Inclusion Flowchart which outlines how concerns are raised about a child and the process we take to make sure that the right support is put in place. 

Here you can find our School Offer, which outlines the different types of support a child on our SEN register might receive.

Staff work closely with parents to ensure children achieve their best. The SENCo will meet with all parents of children on the SEN register at least termly. This dialogue makes sure that parents are part of the Assess, Plan, Do, Review process for their child. Parents may also work with outside agencies; sharing important information and developing strategies on how best to support their children.

If you wish to contact the SENCo, please contact the school office on 020 7385 0535.

How to identify SEN

Information about Special Educational Needs (SEN) and what to do if you think your child has SEN.

What are Special Educational Needs (SEN)?

Special Educational Needs (SEN) is a legal term. It describes the needs of a child who has a difficulty or disability which makes learning harder for them than for other children their age.

Around one in five children has SEN at some point during their school years. Some children have SEN right through their time in school.

SEN covers a broad spectrum of difficulty or disability. Children may have wide-ranging or specific problems. Eg, a child might have difficulty with one area of learning, such as letters or numbers. Or they might have problems relating to other children, or to adults.

What if I think my child has SEN?

You know your child better than anyone else. If your child is pre-school, don’t wait for their next routine health check – visit your GP and ask for their opinion. If your child attends a pre-school speak to their teacher or key worker.

If your child is already in school (including nursery) talk to their teacher. Ask also to speak to the school’s Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), who organises extra help for children with SEN.

Talk to the teacher/SENCO about:

  • why you think your child has SEN
  • what the school can do to help
  • what you can do to help

Your child’s teacher and the SENCO will use the SEN Code of Practice to work out whether your child has SEN.

What will the school do?

Schools are required by law to provide an education for all pupils, regardless of their ability or special needs. Every child’s education is equally important.

If the SENCO and your child’s teacher agree that your child has SEN, they will offer your child extra support with the possibility of more support if needed.

Whatever the school decides to do you will be informed.
