The School: Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The new SEND code of Practice: 0-25 years 2015 states that a child has special educational need if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. The provision needed will be 'additional to' or 'different' from that made generally. The school will use a graduated approach to meet the needs of students with SEND. See SEN policy at the bottom of this page.

The school’s aims for SEND

• To ensure the early identification and assessment of all students’ needs, and to recognize that these needs may change over time.
• To make the best possible provision for students with SEND within the limits of the resources available to the school.
• To ensure all students with SEND have full access to a broad and balanced curriculum, and are able to fulfill their potential.
• To ensure all students with SEND are included as fully as possible in the activities of the school.
• To ensure that the views and wishes of students with SEND are heard and taken in to account in the planning and reviewing process.
