Special Educational Needs/Disability (SEND)
We are a fully inclusive school which strives to ensure that all pupils achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically.
During their journey throughout the school, children may present with difficulties in relation to cognition and learning, communication and interaction, social, emotional and mental health or physical difficulties. When special educational needs/disabilities are identified, school staff will contact parents/carers and invite them into school to discuss the concerns, the support and interventions being provided for their child and specific targets which have been set to enable progress to be made.
Staff then ensure that parents/carers are involved in reviewing and setting new targets for their child on a regular basis.
If it is thought that involvement of outside agencies such as Educational Psychology, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Lifecycle, would be beneficial for the child then a discussion would take place with parents/carers and consent gained for a referral to be made.
Our rigorous assessment system enables us to identify children who are not achieving age related expectations or making progress. We can then identify the reasons why and decide on the steps needed to address the child’s individual needs.
Our SEND policy and SEN Information Report are available on the school website.
