Special Educational Needs

Our Local Offer and SEN Policy

We are proud of the provision we make for all our pupils, including those with disabilities, Special Educational Needs or those who are more able, or gifted and talented. Our site allows wheelchair access. If your child has specific needs we recommend that you visit the school and make an appointment to discuss these further.

Our provision takes into account Government regulations and guidelines for pupils with Special Educational Needs, including the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice, Disability Discrimination Act 1995, the Equality Act 2010, and the Sex Discrimination Act 1975.

Governors ensure that all policies linked to these areas are reviewed regularly and fully implemented. All learners are regularly assessed by their class teacher and great importance is placed on direct contact with parents so that at all times the teachers and parents are working together to support each child.

If there are concerns about progress, individual learners may be assessed to help with diagnosis. An Individual Education Plan can then be drawn up to meet the needs of the individual. Outside agencies, e.g. speech therapist, educational psychologist are involved as appropriate.
