What are Special Educational Needs (SEND)?

“Children have SEN if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special education provision to be made for them.”

Children are recognized as having a learning difficulty if they:

  • have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age
  • have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age.

One governor has specific responsibility for SEND. The school’s governing body ensures that provision is made for pupils who have SEND. It will report to parents on the implementation of the SEND policy and will ensure that SEND provision is an integral part of the School Development Plan.
Children who make slower progress will be given carefully differentiated learning opportunities to help them achieve. Progress will be regularly monitored and parents/carers and children will be involved in a close-working partnership with the school.
Identifying and Assessing needs
We are committed to the early identification and intervention of children who may have SEND. Identification of special needs may come from: the class teacher, the SEND coordinator (SENDCO), the Headteacher or the parents.
The graduated response, adopted in our school, recognises that there is a continuum of needs. This is recommended in the SEN Code of Practice and is in line with the LA policy.

Disability Facilities

The school premises are single story on ground level and include disabled access and toilet.
