Special Educational Needs and Disability is also called SEN or SEND.
Our school promotes high standards and all pupils, regardless of their particular needs, are offered inclusive teaching, which enables them to make the best possible progress and develop as valued members of our school community.
We offer a range of provision to support children with SEND (including those with communication and interaction difficulties, cognition and learning difficulties, social, mental and health problems or sensory or physical needs). We have high expectations of all children and staff and we believe that it is the entitlement of all children to have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
This policy complies with the statutory requirement laid out in the SEND Code of Practice 0-25 (July 2014) and has been written with reference to the following guidance and documents:
Equality Act 2014: advice for schools DfE Feb 2013
SEND Code of Practice 0-25
Schools SEN Information Report Regulations (2014)
Statutory Guidance on Supporting pupils at school with medical conditions (April 2014)
