Hamer Primary aims to be an inclusive school.


We know how to achieve educational inclusion by:

  • Identifying and overcoming potential barriers to learning and assessment.
  • Responding to diverse learning needs.
  • Setting suitable and aspirational learning challenges for all children.


We have an SEND team of Mrs Terry (Deputy head), Mrs Coward (Pastoral Manager), Miss Breckon (SENDco), and a number of SENDTAs.  We offer an open door policy to all parents at Hamer Primary and Miss Breckon is available on all day on Tuesday and on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. 


We have a team of great team of SEND TAs and teachers who are skilled at identifying and supporting children with SEND. 


The class teacher is the first person to speak to if you have concerns or queries about your child.

Admissions Arrangements for Pupils with SEND

Hamer Community Primary School welcomes all children in our community, regardless of special educational needs and disability.  The school follows the School Admissions Code (December 2014) whereby all  children whose statement of special educational needs (SEN) or Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan names the school will be admitted. 

Your child may start their journey at Hamer with previously identified SEN or disabilities.  We will work in partnership with parents and feeder nurseries, schools and wider professionals to give your child a smooth and happy transition into their time at Hamer and ensure the needs of your child are addressed appropriately.
