SEN Information for parents

Priory Fields School is a fully inclusive school.  We aim to provide an environment where all pupils can fully access a broad and balanced curriculum and fully participate in all the activities of the school, irrespective of ability, disability, race, gender, ethnicity and social origin.

If you would like to discuss your child’s Special Educational Needs please contact the school office and make an appointment with a member of the inclusion team.

As a school we can access a range of services and multi-disciplinary professionals through the LIFT (Local Inclusion Forum Team) process.

Kent also provide a range of services available which is called the local offer, these services are available by accessing the Kent website. Kent's Local offer is all about making it easier for people to find out about services available to 0-25 year olds with special educational needs and disabilities:

SEMH Champions

Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) Champions are identified adults in schools who have completed the SEMH Champions programme.  Children, for whatever reason, may encounter difficult life circumstances such as bereavement, family separation or low self-esteem. We are able to offer 1-1 ‘talk time’ or small group work using cognitive behavioural approaches to support our children’s emotional needs and well-being.  We can liaise with other agencies and schools to ensure the best outcomes for our children.  

Our SEMH Champion is Mrs Martin

The Thrive approach is the early identification of emotional developmental need in children.   When you address emotional developmental needs it builds a child’s resilience and supports children engage in learning. The Thrive approach sets out the age-appropriate developmental tasks of children, this knowledge can be used to shape provision to make the best use of learning. This enhances their emotional and social skills, improves their emotional well-being and develops their emotional literacy.

Miss Hughes leads our team of Thrive practitioners:
