Educating Today's Child For Tomorrow




All Hertfordshire 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, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. Schools aim to be inclusive, with the needs of SEND pupils being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.


Mrs Munroe, Mrs Ironside and Mrs Smart are our Inclusion leaders (SENDCOs) across the federation. They are experienced teachers who hold professional qualifications in working with children with SEN and children with vulnerabilities. They work closely with each of the class teachers and help to identify needs, organise provision and liaise with external professionals in order to meet the needs of our children. They also organise additional intervention programmes with the support staff in school.


If you want to talk about your child’s special educational need or disability the Inclusion Leads can be contacted in school.   Appointments can be made via the school office.


For questions and answers about the type of support we are able to provide at Bushey Primary Education Federation, please read the documents below. (In response to parent feedback we have included a simplified version of the Information Report which outlines the main elements).


• Hertfordshire Local Offer-services for children/young people with SEND


• Developing Specialist Provision Locally (DSPL 9)

What is Delivering Special Provision Locally (DSPL)?

DSPL is a Hertfordshire-wide partnership approach where parents, staff in early years settings and schools, further education colleges, local authority officers and representatives from other agencies, work together as part of an Area Group, reviewing and developing the range of provision and support services available to their local community that :

  • Meets the needs of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), aged 0-25, as close to home as possible.
  • Improves outcomes for wellbeing and attainment
  • Widens choice for children and parents/carers
  • Removes barriers to learning
  • Uses resources more effectively
