 Special Educational Needs

Our vision:

‘Every child should have the chance to be the best they can be’

 

High quality first teaching where every teacher is a teacher of children with special educational needs is at the core of our values as a school. We want all children in our school to access learning to the best of their ability and we will personalise and differentiate the approaches we offer to ensure this happens.

The school and Governors are required by law to make special educational provision for any child who has significantly greater difficulty in learning than most children of the same age. Such needs may include learning difficulties, physical disabilities, hearing or visual impairments, specific language needs or social and emotional needs.

Our Special Educational Needs (or SEN) Policy is based upon guidelines from the SEN Code of Practice 2014 published by the Department for Children Schools and Families. This can be found below or in the policies section of the website. Our aims are to ensure our provision is child centred and ensure we have early identification and assessment of SEN in order to provide an appropriately tailored curriculum, which is monitored carefully, alongside close liaison with parents and carers.

Class teachers are responsible for differentiating for the needs of children with SEN. It is the role of the Director of Inclusion/SENCo to co-ordinate the provision of SEN and seek advice, where necessary, from those specialist support agencies, such as the Educational Psychologist. The Director of Inclusion/SENCo Tinuviel Machin-Short also links closely with the Governor responsible for Special Educational Needs Shufqat Khan. You can contact the SENCo and the Special Educational Needs governor through the school office.

Each year every school is required to provide a SEN Information report which will inform you about how the school supports special educational needs. Please find the SEN Information report for 2017/18 below. You can also find information about what provision the school offers through our local offer.
