Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) at Lovelace Primary School

All schools in the Royal Borough of Kingston have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the Local Authority 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 a Special Educational Need and/or Disability (SEND) being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.

'Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs do very well at the school, as do pupils who speak English as an additional language. Their needs are quickly identified. They receive effective support individually or in small groups.' (OFSTED)
