SEND Support

Some children at our school need extra help with their learning and whether they're nursery or primary age, every child is an individual with different needs. We put provision in place to support individual needs.

Norfolk SEND Local Offer

The SEND Local Offer gives information to support families who have a child who needs extra help.

The easiest way to find out about the services and support available in Norfolk is on the SEND Local Offer website because it gives information about the support available.

English as an Additional Language - Supporting EAL Learners

Here at Queen’s Hill Primary we are proud to welcome families from a wealth of different cultures and backgrounds and we greatly value the rich diversity of our school community. We strive to recognise and celebrate the 30 different languages spoken by our children.

As part of our celebration of language and culture, the school libraries have bilingual books, multi-language dictionaries and PENpals talking pens which translate books and other resources into numerous different languages. These resources can be accessed by our children in Nursery, all the way up to Year 6!

During their time at our school, our EAL (English as an Additional Language) pupils are closely monitored for their progress in the curriculum and their acquisition of English. We provide a variety of support for our EAL pupils depending on their needs. This includes using visuals, translated materials and intervention support to boost vocabulary and communication as required.


Norfolk SENDIASS provide free and impartial information, advice and support about special educational needs & disabilities (SEND) for children, young people, parents and carers.

Equality and Accessibility

Here at Queen's Hill Primary School it is really important to us that all stakeholders (pupils, parents, staff and members of the local community) are consulted and share their voice when developing policies. For us, it is also imperative to consult these stakeholders to promote equality and eliminate discrimination.

Please visit the forms and policies part of our website to view the Equality and Accessibility policy.

Contact is a charity for families with disabled children. Their aim is to help families feel valued, supported, confident and informed.

They also offer local support in Norfolk, including workshops for parents/carers. Find out more here.

SEND – Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

To ensure our school is child-centred and gives all children the best educational offer, we use the statutory guidance taken from ‘The SEND Code of Practice: for 0 to 25 years (2015)’ to ensure our provision for children with SEND is appropriate. This document also defines a child with SEND if:

A child or young person has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he/she:

  • has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age
  • has a disability which prevents or hinders him/her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions

At Queen’s Hill Primary School and Nursery, we ensure there is provision for pupils with the following areas of need:

Provision for children with SEND at our school is continually reflected upon and adapted through using the graduated approach of assess, plan, do, review. We use Individual Educational Plans (IEPs) to record this termly process.

We use Norfolk’s SEND Local Offer to access provision from professionals outside of school. These include NHS workers, support from charities and the local authority.
