SEND Unit Consultation
We are seeking your initial views about a proposal to create a special educational needs (SEN) unit at Mossgate Primary School. We want to assure you that we will give careful consideration to all your comments and opinions. We will use your feedback to develop our proposal ready to take to the next stage of formal consultation. This is a legal requirement in order to make changes like this to a school.
What are we planning to do?
The proposal is to create a SEN unit for between eight and sixteen children with social communication and interaction needs in Mossgate Primary School.
All of these children will have education, health and care plans. Some of these children will transfer from another school to Mossgate Primary School so that they can attend the SEN unit.
Children attending the SEN unit will be taught in the unit for some of the time and at other times they will be taught with other children in existing classes.
All children already on roll at Mossgate Primary School will still be able to attend the school and this change will not affect current admission criteria.
Please scroll down to the bottom of the page to open the booklet which contains more information and also has a brief survey for you to complete if you would like to submit your views.
Welcome to Mossgate Primary School
Our school is a special place, where everyone who comes through our doors is welcomed into our warm and happy school community, is valued and is treated as a unique individual. We have high expectations of ourselves and of the children in our care. We do everything we can to enable every child, with their unique characteristics, to be the best they can be both academically and personally.
We help children to develop their personal and social skills and all the values that enable children to become responsible citizens in their local, national and global communities. To achieve this, we have a dedicated and supportive staff team, who work hard to make primary school life full of happy memories that the children will never forget.
We have effective and well established partnerships with other agencies and organisations to ensure that we have access to specialist expertise to support children's learning and well-being. We also pride ourselves on working closely with parents too to ensure school is a partnership, working in the interests of every child.
We know we have achieved our goals when our pupils leave us with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make a positive transition to high school and when ex-pupils return to visit to tell us about their successes, how the skills for life they learned with us have influenced them, and that they wish they could come back!
This website will provide you with lots of key information you will need as a parent. You can find more information in our 'Prospectus & Parent Handbook 2020 / 2021' and also on our Facebook page. If there is anything else that you need to know, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Mr R Smith (Headteacher) and all the Mossgate Staff and Governors
