SEND at Gatehouse

At Gatehouse Primary Academy, we welcome everybody into our community. The staff, governors, pupils and parents all work together to make Gatehouse Primary Academy a happy, welcoming place where children and adults can achieve their full potential and develop as confident individuals. This means that equality of opportunity must be a reality for our children. We make this a reality through the attention we pay to different groups of children within our school community, thus providing a learning environment that enables all pupils to make the greatest possible progress and achieve their full potential in a caring, supportive and fully inclusive environment.


Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision allows pupils with learning difficulties the opportunity to follow a curriculum specifically tailored to develop life skills and to give pupils self-confidence through their learning, thus enabling them to maximise their potential and to work independently. We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND pupils through a personalised learning system.


All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they can achieve their best, become confident individuals living fulfilling lives and make a successful transition in to adulthood.


If your child has special educational needs and/or a disability and you would like to know more about what we offer at Gatehouse Primary Academy please contact us. Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator is Deborah Griffith, who you can reach by contacting the school on 01626 862605, or by emailing
