SEND Local Offer

At Firthmoor Primary School, we are dedicated to providing the very best care and education for all our children. We want our school to be a happy, inclusive and successful community, within a safe, positive and supportive environment.

We aim for all pupils to achieve their full potential. We offer a balanced curriculum, which is tailored to enable all pupils to develop their skills and talents through positive and realistic goals. We recognise that some pupils require additional support to reach their potential and use a range of approaches to meet the needs of these children.

Provision for pupils with disabilities and additional educational needs


At Firthmoor Primary School we look at the educational needs of a pupil with disabilities and, in liaison with all other agencies involved with the pupil and their parents, develop an individual education plan, which will allow children to achieve their full potential.


We are committed to ensuring pupils have access to all areas of the curriculum and operate a Single Equality Policy to remove any barriers to access, participation, progression, attainment and achievement.


Our school building is one level and is fully accessible for any person with physical disabilities. However, we recognise that there is always room for improvement, and we would welcome any further suggestions as to how we could improve our accessibility to all, whatever their disability.

By working as a team with parents, pupils, staff and the wider community we aim to provide the best possible learning environment for all children, including those with additional needs

Firthmoor SEND Local Offer

Darlington Borough Council have produced a Local Offer for parents and Carers of children with Special Educational Needs or a Disability (SEND). The purpose of the Local Offer is to ‘offer’ information for parents, in a single place, which helps them to understand what services they and their family can expect from a range of local agencies including:

  • what the law says they may be entitled to;
  • what is available for their child from early years settings, schools (including Academies and Free Schools), colleges and other services,
  • What is available from education, health and social care.
