Global Goal 4: Quality Education

SENDCO: Mrs McGrorey

We are proud to be an inclusive school at Plymouth Grove. All children have an equal right to learn and succed in our school. Through our comprehensive approach to SEND, we strive to provide a secure, caring and happy environment in which all of our pupils can experience success and enjoyment. 

Our dedication to meet all children's individual needs helps us to maximise every child's inclusion in all aspects of school life. We believe in equal opportunities for all, where everyone is treated with respect, dignity and is equally valued. We value and honour the views of our pupils and their families and provide opportunities for them to influence change and to be fully involved in the decision-making process.

We believe that inclusion is essential in ensuring the equality of opportunity for all learners whatever their age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, attainment and background. This demonstrates our commitment to valuing the diversity of the school community.

At the heart of our practice are the principles of the Manchester SEND Charter:


It is accepted that many pupils will experience some form of difficulty at some time in their education.  At Plymouth Grove Primary School, we aim to match the pupils’ needs, whether they are complex and recognised by an Education and Health Care Plan or of a more specific but temporary nature, with appropriate support.

Help may be given in a variety of ways, ranging from high quality whole class teaching, intensive small group work or when possible, one to one support.

The school works closely with the Local Authority and other agencies to help ensure the needs of all pupils are met. 

The link below is access to the Manchester Local offer. Manchester Local offer helps children,young people and their parents (carers) to understand what services they can expect form a range of local agencies - including their statutory (by law) entitlements. These services range from things to do; childcare; transport and many more offers to help support you and your child in the local community.
