Students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

You will find information here about the aims of our special educational need and disability (SEND) policy and practice and the Annual SEND Information Report.

In this school are to work within the guidance provided in the SEND Code of Practice (2014):

  • To make reasonable adjustments for those with a SEND by taking action to increase access to the curriculum and the environment for all.
  • To ensure that children and young people with SEND engage in the activities of the school with pupils who do not have SEND.
  • To reduce barriers to progress by embedding the principles in the National Curriculum Inclusion statement.
  • To use our best endeavours to secure special educational provision for pupils for whom this is required, that is “additional to and different from” that provided within the differentiated curriculum and inclusive provision, to better respond to the four broad areas of need:
  1. Communication and interaction,
  2. Cognition and learning,
  3. Social, emotional and mental health,
  4. Sensory/physical.
  • To listen, respond to and work with parent/carers’ and pupils’ views in order to evidence high levels of confidence and partnership.
  • To ensure a high level of staff training and support to meet pupil need, through well targeted continuing professional development.
  • To support pupils with medical conditions to achieve full inclusion in all school activities by ensuring consultation with health and social care professionals in order to meet the medical needs of pupils.
  • To work in cooperative and productive partnership with the Local Authority and other outside agencies, to ensure there is a multi-professional approach to meeting the needs of all vulnerable learners.
