SEND Documents

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.

Across Pele Trust we believe that every child has an entitlement to learn, regardless of need. We aim to maximise potential, offering inclusion and equality at all stages of school life. At present we work within the remit of The Special Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 and aim to liaise closely together as schools, and with parents, to offer a personalised curriculum and success for all.  We believe that the most successful way to maximise potential of all children is through the successful partnership of staff, parents, children and support agencies. SENDCOs across the Trust work very effectively together meeting regularly to share good practice, plan and to discuss current research. We rigorously assess and monitor the development of all children from their individual starting points to ensure they are making appropriate and expected progress.

As a parent you have a vital role in supporting your child’s school life; home and school working together has been proved to be crucial to success. 

Please do not hesitate to speak to any member of staff if you have any questions.
