Special Educational Needs (SEN)
Longford Park School pupil cohort consists of full time pupils with education, health and care plans (EHCP), a small number of pupils placed in the Pupil Referral section of the school and part-time ‘step out’ pupils who do not usually have an EHCP but 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 an EHCP but remain on roll at their mainstream school in order to make a transition back when the appropriate time occurs.
The admissions criterion for 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.
We have two Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCO) who can be contacted through the School Office - Miss Wilson or Mrs Walker.
Every child with autism is different so we make sure at Longford Park School that we work with each child individually, ensuring they build on their strengths, learn with confidence and enthusiasm and achieve the very best they can.
We celebrate your child’s strengths, recognise what they find hard, and help them to develop all of their skills. Above all, we take time to get to know your child so that they enjoy school, learn well and become ever more confident in their own abilities.
We are currently working with the National Autistic Society to ensure our educational setting is the best it can be for those on the autistic spectrum.
