Special Educational Needs at Silverstone CE Primary School
At Silverstone Primary we are very proud of our inclusive ethos. As such, our school is made up of children with a wide range of abilities and we believe that over the years many children with SEN and/or disabilities have enjoyed their time at Silverstone Primary where they have thrived, made good progress and have been well prepared for the next stage in their education.
Mrs Capstick, our SENCO, can be contacted via the school office; she closely monitors how all our children with SEND are progressing. Our aim is that children with SEND achieve their full potential just like every other child in school. This is achieved through the use of Individual Education Plans where appropriate, meetings with teachers and parents, provision of specialist resources, accessing specialist support and targeted interventions that meet a child’s individual needs.
Children with SEN and/or disabilities are fully included in all school activities including after school clubs, trips and school shows/productions.
Complaints about our SEND provision
We urge parents / carers with any concerns regarding the SEND policy or the provision made for their child to speak to the academy as soon as possible and, in the first instance, to the class teacher or the SENCO. If parents / carers feel their child's needs are still not being met they should make an appointment to see the Headteacher. If concerns are still unresolved parents / carers may wish to engage with PDET’s Complaints policy procedures.
NB - any issue relating to statutory SEN assessments should be pursued with the relevant Local Authority and not via PDET’s Complaints policy. If parents / carers require further advice / support, they should use the local Information, Advice and Support Service for Special Educational Needs and Disability SENDIASS:
- Information Advice Support Service for SEND in Northamptonshire (telephone 01604 364772)
All areas of our building and school grounds are fully accessible to all, including wheelchair access.

Special Needs Index - SNIX
The Special Needs Index (SNIX) is an electronic database of information about young people aged 0 to 25 who have a learning or physical disability or sensory impairment and who live in Northamptonshire.
The database only includes information about disabled children that parents or carers supply to us voluntarily. We do not include children on the database without parental consent.
What is the purpose of SNIX?
The SNIX database helps us to plan services for children with special educational needs and disabilities. We compile a newsletter for all those registered with SNIX which provides information about special educational needs and disability services, resources, training, early years, groups, clubs and activities on a regular basis.
