Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

The SEND Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years (2014) states that a child or young person has a special educational need if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:

  • has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
  • has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.



At Burleigh Primary School, we embrace the fact that every child is different, therefore the educational needs of every child will be different. This is certainly the case for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) is Mrs Jenni Collins.
 She is responsible for co-ordinating provision for children on the SEND Register and also supports staff and parents. 


Parents can contact her via the school contact number (01992 622159) or by email at:




Our SEN Governor is Mr Andy Pereira and he can be contacted via the school office.

Autism and ADHD

The Autism and ADHD transformation programme, which includes Hertfordshire County Council, NHS trusts, HPCI and local voluntary organisations, has been working hard to improve services for families and young people.

A key area of work has been ensuring you know where you can go to access support in your local area. This will hopefully help you get access to support as early as you can.

To find out more about the support available, please click the link below to watch this 3-minute animation or visit the Herts Local Offer.
