Stanville School recognises that children have a variety of needs which may be of an academic, emotional, social or physical nature and recognises its responsibility to endeavour to meet such needs.  We are a school that is fully committed to inclusive practice and make reasonable adjustments for individuals where necessary.

All children, ranging from the exceptionally able to those with specific difficulties, will be provided with the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We aim to:

  • Identify individual needs and provide support within the class or school environment;
  • To seek advice and support from appropriate outside agencies;
  • To inform parents of their statutory rights;
  • To meet the requirements of the National Curriculum and the Code of Practice;
  • To assist the class teacher by providing advice, training and suitable resources at each stage of the code;
  • To aid accurate assessment, differentiated provision and informative record keeping matching the work of the children.
  • To work closely with additional professionals e.g. Family Support and Home Liaison Officer, the health service (GPs and consultants) to encourage a 'joined up' working relationship in the interest of the child, parent and school.

Ms Gaynor Upton is our Special Needs Co-ordinator. Mrs Helen Watton, who also works in the Special Needs department, is our Pastoral Achievement Co-ordinator. If you have any concerns about your child or the support that the school provides, please make an appointment through the school office who will direct you to the appropriate department. You can also contact via telephone (0121 464 2322) or email (
