Our SEND Policy

Our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) policy has been written with regard to the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice: 0-25 years (June 2014) and the Equalities Act (2010).

Students will be identified through on-going assessments by the child or young person’s teachers, and brought to the attention of the SENCO if they are making less than expected progress, in spite of high quality, differentiated classroom teaching targeted at the child or young person’s area of weakness.

Our SEN Information Report 

The information required is set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 and must include information about: evaluating the effectiveness of the provision made for children and young people with SEN; how children and young people with SEN are enabled to engage in activities available with children and young people in the school who do not have SEN; support for improving emotional and social development; how the school involves other bodies, including health and social care bodies, local authority support services and voluntary sector organisations and arrangements for handling complaints from parents of children with SEN about the provision made at the school.

Local Offer’s

The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations (June 2014, part 4) places a requirements on local authorities and schools to publish and keep under review information about the services they expect to be available for children and young people with Special educational Needs (SEN) and/or who are disabled, including those who do not have Education Health and Care (EHC) plans. This is referred to as the “Local Offer”.

The intention of the Local Offer is to provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date information about the available provision and how to access it, improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents, families and professionals in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
