Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)
At North Harringay we have a strong commitment to inclusion and meeting the needs of all our children. Many children need extra help at some point during their time at primary school and some have specific learning needs or difficulties in regulating their behaviour.
If your child is assessed as needing additional support you will be consulted and be kept fully informed and involved with your child's development. Children with Special Educational Needs follow the school curriculum and we have high expectations for all our pupils.
We have a class based Assistant Head Teacher with responsibility for inclusion and two SENCOs. One SENCO works with Early Years and Key Stage One, the other SENCO works with Key Stage Two. We all work closely with staff and parents to tailor provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs and ensure their needs are being met. We often work in collaboration with specialists from other services to support the children's learning.
Pastoral Care Manager
The school has a full time Pastoral Care Manager. Her role is to support children's emotional wellbeing, working in collaboration with parents and liaising with outside professionals. The pastoral care manager meets regularly with children, either individually or in small groups and provides support both in class and in her resourced classroom known as 'The Base'
