Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information

At Broadbent Fold we provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils based on key principles; setting suitable learning challenges, responding to pupils diverse needs and overcoming potential barriers to learning.  For children who have a special learning difficulty or a disability, our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) outlines the educational support we provide. This is often referred to as our 'SEND' offer. This provision is alongside the Tameside Local Offer.

  • Mrs Sibson is the governor in charge of SEND.
