Welcome to our Special Educational Needs and Disability section.

At Parkgate Primary, we believe in a partnership between school and home that supports and helps, the learning difficulties or barriers that our children may encounter in their academia or personal and social development. 

Our school's SENDco is Mrs Jo Foster and our SEND governor is Mrs Suzanne McNee.


What to do if you are concerned about your child. 

If you are worried about your child in anyway, please make an appointment with the class teacher to discuss your concern. We always have an 'open door' policy to help in anyway. 

Should the class teacher need advice on matters raised, they will speak to the SENDco. A meeting between the class teacher, SENDco and yourself may be arranged to discuss further actions. 


If you would like to speak to the either the SENDco or SEND governor, they can be contacted directly or through the school office on 0151 329 0361
