Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities
We promote high achievement for all and encourage all children to achieve their full potential. We are an inclusive school and promote equality for all. We are proud of the relationships we develop with each individual child that enable us to identify any needs as soon as they arise, and to address them. We offer extra support for children with special educational needs, plus enrichment and challenge for those children who are gifted and talented. Different levels of support can be provided depending on the needs of the child. Most children will normally be catered for through the usual differentiation of the class work provided by the teacher. However, some children may have a more specific difficulty that would need to be addressed through a specific intervention programme. If the learning difficulty is more general, then the class teacher will plan a programme of extra work for the child that may involve extra adult support. This will be discussed with parents and reviewed regularly through an Individual Education Plan. If we feel unable to provide adequately for the specific needs of the child, then we may involve other agencies for specific support eg speech therapy, educational psychology or behaviour support. If parents have any concerns, questions or information about their child, then it is vital this information is shared with school staff. We aim to work in close partnership with parents to ensure we meet the needs of all children. Head of School – Luke Owen, Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) – Claire Pooley and SEN Governor – Sarah Forsey.
