All Croydon schools are committed to and adopt a similar approach to meeting the needs of all pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disability. There is a shared expectation that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, will benefit from inclusive teaching which will: enable them to make the best possible progress in school, ensure they can actively participate in the wider aspects of school life and support readiness for the next phase of education and/or preparation for adulthood.

Our SEND Vision Statement:

At Purley Oaks Primary School we believe that all our children can do anything if we offer them the opportunity, the motivation and the enthusiastic support. Above all if we share the belief that they can do it, they will achieve.

The school will ensure the necessary provision is made for any pupil with SEND. In doing so we will fulfil the statutory duties and best practice guidelines set out in the Department for Education Draft Code of Practice for SEND.
