The Governors and staff at The Federation of Middleham (VA) & Spennithorne (VC) CE Primary Schools are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils through the provision of challenging and exciting experiences. We celebrate their diversities and differences by embracing an inclusive ethos throughout the school. We recognise that quality learning takes place when we motivate pupils, promote their self-esteem and develop the skills and aptitudes they require to enable them to make their way as lifelong learners.
We understand the importance of finding out the perceptions and feelings of children, and encourage them to be actively involved in their own learning. We value working in partnership with parents, children, and outside agencies to ensure the best provision possible.
At The Federation of Middleham (VA) & Spennithorne (VC) CE Primary Schools we are committed to developing cultures, policies and practices that are inclusive.
We have systems to identify when children have barriers affecting their learning and tailor specific interventions to enable pupils to overcome their barriers.

SEND – Local Offer
All North Yorkshire maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND.) They are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, whatever their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. The Local Authority publishes its Local Offer which provides information for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) and their parents or carers in a single place.
