SEN- Special Educational Needs

  • Last updated: 24 April 2023

Here at Fairburn Primary School we strongly believe that all children must access a full education as well as the school life that goes along side this.

All staff work tirelessly to ensure that all children receive equality of education and experiences. We work closely with both NYCC agencies as well as a range of outside agencies to ensure that all children’s needs can be met. Staff are trained to support the needs of the children we have. 

Our SENCO is Emma Cornhill and you can contact her by ringing school 01977 672158 or emailing admin@fairburn.n‑

Please see our SEND policy below as well as an Information Report detailing our provision. Please also see the links below which we think you will find useful.
