Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

The Prince of Wales School will do its best to ensure that the right provision is made for each pupil with special educational needs and disabilities. We are committed to discovering and providing the best learning conditions for each pupil. In implementing this policy, our goals are to: * identify all pupils who have SEN and disabilities at an early stage, * ensure that pupils with SEN and disabilities have their needs met and that they make progress, * work in line with the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years (Jan 2015), * provide support and advice to all staff who work with pupils with SEN and disabilities, * operate a whole school approach to meeting SEN and disabilities, in which all members of the school community have an understanding of their role, * ensure that pupils with SEN and disabilities join in with all the activities of the school alongside their peers, * adopt a ‘person centred approach’ to supporting pupils with SEN and disabilities, ensuring¦that pupils and their parents are fully involved in decisions which affect them, * ensure there is effective partnership working with outside agencies when appropriate.
