Lucy Byrne

Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator – ‘SENDCo’

I am delighted to continue working at Brixham C of E Primary in the role of SENCo. 


For 20 years, I have been a teacher within the primary age range, having specialised in Early Years. Across both Key stages, I have led PSHCE and behaviour management.  I have always had a passion for SEND provision and qualified as a SENCO in 2019.  I have a strong commitment to working in partnership with staff, parents and carers in order to provide the best provision for our pupils. 


I have a passion for children's literature and outdoor learning, including forest school. In my spare time, I enjoy kayaking and exploring beaches with my family.

Pastoral Lead

A pupil has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

They have a learning difficulty or disability if they have:

  • A significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or

  • A disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools

Special educational provision is 'additional to, or different from' that made generally for other children or young people of the same age by mainstream schools.


If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the school SENDCo.
