Keston Church of England Primary School


In line with the School’s Christian Ethos we aim to develop a vision of inclusion, which is based upon the desire to create a socially inclusive community within the school: no child will be discriminated against because of a disability or a learning or communication difficulty.

An educationally inclusive school is one in which the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and well being of every child matters. The school does not take educational inclusion for granted: the progress that each child makes is constantly monitored and evaluated. The School takes practical steps – in the classroom and beyond – to meet all pupils’ needs effectively.

Meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The SEND Code of Practice states that children have special educational needs (SEND) if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special education provision to be made for them. Provision is that which is additional to or different from the support given to children of the same age.

Keston Primary School welcomes all children with equal warmth, acknowledging the contribution each child makes to the wellbeing of our school community. We have high expectations of all our children and are committed to removing the barriers to learning for every child and supporting participation in all areas of school life. We see the progress and wellbeing of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities as the responsibility of every member of staff within our school community. The range of support offered will always be designed to promote pupils working towards becoming independent and resilient lifelong learners.

Mrs Victoria Colyer is our SENDCO  who works alongside Mrs  T Prandota who is  our Primary SEND Lead. For any queries or complaints in relation to special education needs, please contact Mrs Prandota at  for the attention of the SENDCo.
