Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

York SEND Newsletters

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Support is led in school by our SENDCo. Our SENDCo is Mrs Helen Sawdon. Mrs Sawdon has attained the National Award for Special Educational Needs qualification and both her and all members of staff regularly receive training to support pupils with SEND in school. She also supports schools as a Specialist Leader of Education for Special Educational Needs.


Mr Karl Holden is our SEND Guardian. He provides daily support and advice for families and teachers.

The Designated SEND Governor is Mrs Laura Wade and she can be contacted via the School Office. Our SEND governor works in partnership with the school SENDCo to ensure that we meet statutory requirements and spend our allocated budget to support pupils with additional needs. The full governing body receives a termly report from the school SENDCo.


Our Equal Opportunities policy outlines the expected support for all pupils with SEND at Poppleton, but in truth, they are naturally treasured and nurtured by all.

The school regularly reviews and updates the Accessibility Plan to ensure that we are meeting the needs of all pupils.
