Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.


Bowker Vale Primary School seeks to develop the full potential of each child, recognising the uniqueness of each individual. We promote and celebrate a love of learning with high aspirations for all. For some children additional help or support may be needed and a Special Educational Need or Disability may be identified.

If you have any concerns about your child's learning or progress, or think they may have a special educational need then please speak to their class teacher, who will then pass your concern onto to the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo).


Bowker Vale's SENCo is Mrs Jen Griffin, who can be contacted on 0161 740 5993, at  or by making an appointment at the school office.

Lots more information can be found in our SEND Information Report 2018 here or in our SEN Policy here.

In September 2014, the government made changes to the law for young people and children aged 0-25 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), more information about these can be found here.

There is also a lot of useful information about local services and provision within Manchester at Manchester's Local Offer here.
