Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

A child is defined as having Special Educational Needs if he or she is in need of support which is ‘additional to, or otherwise different from’ the education provided for the other children in that class or age group.

The majority of children who are identified in this way receive suitably differentiated work within the mainstream classroom alongside their classmates.

At all stages in the process of identification and support, the SEN Co-ordinator (SENDCO) will liaise with parents and support agencies to ensure the best education for the child.

There exists in school a clearly expressed Inclusion Policy which should be read in conjunction with our local SEND Report 2015-16.
