At Stanley Common Church of England Primary School, we are committed to ensuring that all our children are happy and learning to the best of their abilities.

Some of our children will have special educational needs and/or disabilities, and we work together with parents and outside agencies to make sure that children have the best education possible in a supportive, inclusive environment.

Our school Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCO) is Miss S Ross. If you have any questions or queries she is available before or after school, on Tuesdays or you can ring (0115 932 2437), email ( or ask the school office for an appointment.
