Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
Our school values the abilities and achievements of all its pupils. We are committed to discovering and providing the best learning conditions for each pupil, promoting development in understanding and social maturity alongside their peers whenever possible.
We shall work together to create a safe community which enables each person to learn and grow socially and emotionally through respect and mutual support.
We aim to:
- Ensure that everyone, whatever their gender, ethnicity or social circumstance, is respected and that every pupil has access to the curriculum and makes the best progress.
- Deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which complies with the requirements of the school curriculum, is appropriate to the child’s needs and contributes continuity of learning and high levels of progress.
- Promote respect through knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs.
- Develop acceptable social behaviour in the community and the wider world.
- Promote attitudes of fairness and honesty.
- Develop all the people who work within the school and empower excellence of teaching.
- Ensure positive partnerships between parents and the school.
- Maintain the positive profile of the school as part of the wider community.
We believe that these aims can only be achieved with the partnership of all staff and parents, by having strong links between home and school, and within an ethos of a secure and supportive environment.
Effective SEN provision takes place within a cycle of early identification, target setting, intervention, assessment and evaluation.
What is the Local Offer?
The Children and Families Bill Act 2014 requires Local Authorities (LA) and schools to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is the ‘SEN Information Report’.
The purpose of the Local Offer is to enable parents and young people to find out more easily the services that are available in their area and how to access them. The Local Offer will include provision from birth to 25, across education, health, social care and the voluntary sector.
