Special Educational Needs and Disabilities


At Eagle CP School we aim to enable all chidlren to achieve their best at school.  In order to do this, many steps are taken to support them on their learning journey.  We pride ourselves in offering quality first teaching and our focus on each child as an individual, understanding their uniqueness, whilst ensuring that they develop a sense of belonging in their class and our school.  On occasions, for some children, further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.

If you have any questions about SEND please contact your child's class teacher or our SENDCo, Michael Watson on 01522 868354.


By working together in partnership, we can provide the best support for your child.

Admission arrangements for pupils with disabilities

Eagle CP School fully implements the duties placed upon it by the Equality Act 2010.   The Act defines a disabled person as one who has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on a persons ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.

Most children with Additional Needs will not be disabled within the meaning of the Act.  The admission of pupils with disabilities is initially considered in the first instance in the same way as those applied to pupils without disabilities.  Further considerations are made in the light of need and accessibility. 

Eagle CP School follows the admissions policy laid down by Lincolnshire Local Education Authority.  Please click here to go to our admissions page.

The Act provides people with legal protection from discrimination in a variety of circumstances and Part 6, Chapter 1 of the Act addresses education specifically and talks about the protections offered to children in schools.  Under the Act, schools must not discriminate, harass or victimise a person seeking to be admitted as a pupil.  This includes the terms on which a person is offered a place or is not offered a place.  Schools must also ensure that no existing pupil is discriminated against in the manner in which education is provided, the way that pupils are able to access facilities/services, or through excluding a pupil or submitting them to any other detriment.  The Act stipulates that schools are required to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ so that all children can access their facilities and services.

It is the Governors’ policy to accommodate pupils with disabilities should parents wish and individual needs are planned for, to prevent any pupils being treated less favourably that other pupils.  In practice we ensure that classroom and extra-curricular activities encourage the participation of all pupils, including those categorised as having Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.  Staff organise human and physical resources within the school to increase access to learning and participation by all pupils.

Disabled Access

Eagle CP School recognises the importance of making the school accessible to all, both in the curriculum and where possible in all areas of the school premises and facilities.  We have the following facilities available for pupils, parents or visitors with disabilities:

  • Eagle CP School is a single level building contained on one site only.  Access to the site can be gained through four entrances; one at the front of the school, and three side/rear entrances that are locked during the school day and opened at specific times to allow ease of drop off and pick up of pupils. 
  • The school foyer and main reception area have an accessible entrance.    There is access to seating in the school reception area.  There is ramped access to both classroom 4 and Little Eagles nursery.  There are no changes in floor level within the building structure.  Access throughout the building has been considered for disability needs; all doorways and corridors are wide to allow mobility access. 
  • There is a car park facility for members of staff with a designated disabled parking bay clearly marked on the school car park. 
  • There is an accessible disabled toilet facility in the school that is clearly signposted as such.
