SEND Support & Intervention at Ogbourne CofE Primary

At Ogbourne, we aim to build an environment based on ‘love, laughter and learning’ in which all children feel happy, safe, and fully included in all aspects of school life.  We strive to provide access to a creative, fun, inclusive curriculum which is both broad and balanced.

We do this through a wide range of strategies and activities which include; whole-class quality first teaching, small groups and one-to-one specific interventions, as well as pastoral support when required.

If you have any questions with regards to SEND and/ or inclusion, please contact school and discuss with your child's class teacher.  If you would like any further information then please speak to Mrs Crump (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Coordinator - SENCO).

Please see our ‘SEND Information Report’ and ‘SEND policy’ to find out more about SEND provision at Ogbourne by clicking the links below.

The code of practice also requires local councils to provide information for parents about support that is available locally.  This can be found at 


Our Christian Ethos & SEND
The ethos of Ogbourne CofE Primary is one which values the individuality of the child.  The staff and Governors are committed to a policy which seeks to meet the individual needs of each child, particularly by developing and reinforcing self-esteem and by encouraging a positive attitude to life.  To these ends, each child is helped to achieve a feeling of success in some aspect of school life and every effort made to instil a sense of pride in themselves and their work.  The School Policy is consistent with the fundamental principles contained in the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice, 2015.
