At Anderton Primary School, we believe that each pupil has individual and unique needs. However, some pupils require more support than others. To ensure all pupils achieve their full potential, we plan accordingly to remove any barriers to their achievement.

At our school we provide all pupils with strategies for dealing with their individual needs in a supportive environment and to give them a meaningful access to the National Curriculum.

If you would like more information about our SEND provision, please contact Mrs Laithwaite, our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co – Ordinator (SENDCo) via the school.


Below are links to documents that reflect our provision and our assessment of Special Educational Needs.  Please also read the Lancashire Local Offer.
