The Government has asked all Local Authorities in the UK to publish, in one place, information about the services and provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND).

This is known as the Local Offer. Further information about the Sunderland Local Offer can be accessed by click on the link below:

Barmston Village Primary School - Our Offer

Barmston Village Primary School aims for all children to be included regardless of whether they have special educational needs or not. We will provide equal opportunities for all children, irrespective of gender, race, need or background, which will allow them to experience success and achievement and to reach their full potential.

Special educational needs and / or a disability can affect many children throughout their school career and beyond. Whilst disabilities generally affect children long term, not all SEN difficulties should be seen as ‘Life Long’. SEND is seen by our school as when a child requires provision that is additional to, or different from, the rest of the class. For example, additional needs may be due to coordination problems, number understanding or significant sight problems – the list is endless and every child is unique – however a carefully planned approach is needed, additional to high quality class teaching in order for these children to achieve as well as they can.

Please see the document below for further information and if you have any questions about our SEND Offer please contact the school office (0191 4175945) and ask to speak to SENCO: Mrs C Matthews (
