SEND and Inclusion

At Coniston, we believe that every child matters and is committed to providing a high quality education for all, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment or family background.

We recognise that some children at different times in their school life may need “something different” to meet their needs. Examples include providing some additional support in smaller groups, specialist teaching or enrichment opportunities. Parents will be kept informed of any additional support their child is receiving.

Any Questions? Please contact Sam Glover (SENCo)

Our Approach

Coniston Primary School is supported by South Gloucestershire Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. Staff are trained and supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen. Because we understand that this is a complex area we have listed some of the Frequently Asked Questions and explained how these are addressed within our school (SEND Information Report). 

Copies of the SEND policy is available from the school office on request and on the school website.

Does your child need any special equipment? Jigsaw is a local charity that loans out SEN equipment.


Jigsaw is a small welcoming group set up by parents to support families with children and young people with any additional needs. This may be learning problems such as dyslexia to complex disabilities or health problems and may be without diagnosis.We offer a range of events, socialising opportunities, support and information, signposting and the JIGSAW Lending Library.

All events are open to parents, siblings and children with additional needs. Last year we offered around 65 events and sessions and welcomed over 1000 attendees.
