Special Educational Needs (SEN)

The intention of Trafford’s local offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. All schools and academies in Trafford are expected to identify and support pupils with special educational needs to make the best possible progress. Schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible and wherever possible, the needs of pupils with a Special Educational Need are met in a mainstream setting, where families want this to happen. Trafford’s Graduated Approach provides guidance on expectations of what should usually be available within school’s resources.

Longford Park School pupil cohort consists of full time pupils with statements, up to 8 pupils placed in the Pupil Referral section of the school and part-time ‘step out’ pupils who do not usually have statements and require short-stay support whilst remaining in their mainstream schools for the remainder of the week. Some pupils attend on a full-time SEN assessment basis without a statement but remain on roll at their mainstream school in order to make a transition back when the appropriate time occurs.

The admissions criterion for statemented pupils is determined by Trafford Local Authority and requests for placements are sent directly from them to Longford Park School.

Trafford Local Authority has formulated their School Admissions Scheme in accordance with School Admissions (Coordination of Admission Arrangements)(England) Regulations 2008 which came into force on February 10th 2009.


Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Mrs J. Osguthorpe who can be contacted through the School Office.

Please take a look at our SEN policy which can be found on our policy page.
