Welcome to our SEND page

Sandal Castle VA Community Primary School is recognised by external practitioners, professionals and organisations for our exemplary and inspirational work in relation to supporting children with SEND.

At Sandal Castle Primary we view Inclusion as :

  • a sense of belonging
  • feeling respected
  • feeling valued for who you are
  • feeling a level of supportive energy and commitment so that we can do our best.

These underpin the inclusive curriculum we offer.



At Sandal Castle, we have two SENCo's who work closely together to ensure a seamless transition for children and their families as they transition between each key stage:


EYFS / KS1 SENCo - Kelly Wiles                              

KS2 SENCo - Rebecca Smethurst

SEND Governor - Mark Buckley

We have a large team of inclusion staff, who are all trained in specific areas of SEND. Our team of skilled staff are able to plan provision to meet the needs of the children within our care.
