Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)

At Rockwell Green Primary School, our approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) is to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a SEND being met within a class based setting wherever possible and where families want this to happen.

We also understand that you know your child best and you may feel that they need some additional help or support for some or all of their time at school. The leaflet and other documents below provide information about the types of support available to your child at Rockwell Green Primary School. It will help you to understand who can help and how this support can be accessed.


If you have concerns about your child then please discuss this with your child's class teacher in the first instance. The teacher will be able to talk things through with you and raise concerns with the SENDCo who is Mr Adfield.


The Somerset Local Authority’s Local Offer provides lots of guidance and further support and can be accesed by clicking this link:

Somerset Graduated Response Tool

The Somerset Graduated Response Tool sets out the provision of what is ordinarily available in Somerset schools at Universal and Special Educational Needs (SEN) support levels. It was co-produced with stakeholders from education, health, social care, parent carers, young people and support service teams. We asked children and young people 'If I need help with my learning, what can I expect?'

Mental Health Support Team

We work closely with the Mental Health Support Team to support the wellbeing of the children in our school. They provide lots of support for children and parents through Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (LI CBT).  This evidenced based treatment works best for children, young people and parents/carers when they have the cognitive abilities to be aware of their thoughts and behaviours and the motovation to affect change. Please do speak to your class teacher or the SENDCo for more information.
