All Sunderland Local Authority (LA) maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.


All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.


The broad ‘areas of need’ being Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties and Sensory and Physical Needs.


If you are the parent of a pupil with SEN and you would like to raise a concern, please contact Mrs Wilson [SENCO] via the school office on 0191 4155050 or


What is the Local Offer and SEND Information Report?

The LA Local Offer


The Children and Families Bill will became enacted in 2014. From this date Local Authorities (LA) and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) aged 0-25. This is the 'Local Offer'.


The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.  Click the link to Sunderland Service Directory


The School SEND Information Report

This utilises the LA Local Offer to meet the needs of SEND pupils as determined by school policy and the provision that the school is able to provide.


The school SEND policy is available  on our policy page Policies | Rickleton Primary School


The document below outlines the roles and responsibilities of the school to pupils with SEND. It will also guide parents in understanding the needs of their child and how they can request support or report concerns.
