Shaw Primary Academy

Local Offer – SEND information report

Shaw Primary is an inclusive school where children aged 3-11 feel safe, happy and valued. 

Our broad and balanced curriculum is innovative, creative and fun and is taught through exciting projects that support our love of learning and our respectful ethos.


Children will develop the skills of language, mathematics, science and technology.  Pupils build confidence, develop self-reliance, learn to make decisions and develop the ability to express feelings and ideas.  It is important that children learn to build relationships with other children and adults and be sensitive to the needs of others.


In order to fulfil this, the school is organised to meet the needs of individual children and to provide experiences to enable each child to reach his/her full potential.  We aim to create a warm, caring atmosphere where your child can feel safe, relaxed, accepted and valued.  We recognise the need to develop each child’s self-confidence and see this as necessary for children to make full use of the curriculum offered.


At Shaw, Every Child Matters and we treat every child as an individual; we are concerned not only about academic skills but emotional, creative and physical development.  With this in mind we view the child’s pre-school experiences as important, and recognise the value of working closely with parents.  This partnership should continue throughout your child’s time in school. 

Our Vision


At Shaw, we take pride in our community by

inspiring and empowering every individual

to find and unlock their potential.


We strive to be lifelong learners.

All Thurrock Schools are committed to and adopt a similar approach to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). There is a shared expectation that all children, regardless of their specific needs, should be offered inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress in school and feel that they are a valued member of the wider school community.


Shaw Primary Academy is an inclusive school and may offer the following range of provision to support children with communication and interaction, cognition and learning difficulties, social, mental and emotional health problems or sensory or physical needs.


The range of support deployed will be tailored to individual need following thorough assessment by internal and/or external agencies as well as taking into account parental views. It is designed to promote children working towards becoming independent and resilient learners and should not be seen in isolation.
