At Lumley Primary Federation, we are committed to the equal inclusion of all pupils in all areas of school life. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all of our pupils and take into account the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).


Fun to teach and fun to learn

Enjoy and achieve together


Our school mottos are at the forefront of all that we do. We ensure that we provide creative, innovative and engaging activities so that all of our children are inspired, enthused and motivated to learn. We are inclusive schools and pride ourselves in raising awareness of equalities and fundamental human rights, creating an inclusive and supportive learning environment and ensuring all children are given the best possible chance to enjoy and succeed. We work with children, parents and external agencies to ensure that we provide all pupils with a positive educational experience and the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

There are four broad areas of special educational need, these are:

Communication and Interaction: This includes pupils with Autism Spectrum Condition and those with Speech, Language and Communication Needs.
