Special Educational Needs

Who is the SENCO?

My name is Anna Pike and I am the SENCO at Calveley Primary Academy.  I am a qualified teacher with over 10 years experience teaching across the Primary phase.  I hold the National Qualification for Headship and have worked as a SENCO in a range of Cheshire schools.


My role at Calveley includes:

  • Coordinating all the support for children with special educational needs (SEN) and or disabilities, and developing the school’s Special Educational Needs and disability (SEND) policy to make sure all children get a consistent, high-quality response to meeting their needs in school.

  • Ensuring that you are: involved in supporting your child’s learning; kept informed about the support your child is receiving; involved in reviewing how they are progressing; fully involved in planning ahead for them.

  • Liaising with all the other people who may be coming into school to help support your child’s learning, e.g. Speech and Language Therapy, Educational Psychology, etc.

  • Updating the school’s SEND record of need, (a system for ensuring all the special educational, physical and sensory needs of pupils in this school are known and understood) and making sure that there are excellent records of your child’s progress and needs.

  • Providing specialist support for teachers and support staff in the school so they can help your child (and other pupils with SEN and/or disabilities in the school) to achieve their potential.

When am I available ...

I am employed by the Real Life Learning Academy Trust, covering Acton CE Primary Academy, Calveley Primary Academy, and Bridgemere CE Primary in addition, working x3 days per week across these schools. My usual working days are Tuesday - Thursday, but I am sometimes available on other days.
