The SEND code of Practice: 0-25 states that a child has special educational need if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. The provision needed will be ‘additional to’ or ‘different’ from that made generally. The school will use a graduate approach to meet the needs of students with SEND. Please also see our SEN policy at the bottom of this page.
The School’s aims for SEND
- To ensure the early identification and assessment of all students’ needs, and to recognise that these needs may change over time.
- To make the best possible provision for students with SEND with the limits of the resources available to the school.
- To ensure all students with SEND have full access to a broad and balanced curriculum, and are able to fulfil their potential.
- To ensure all students with SEND are included as fully as possible in the activities of the school.
- To ensure that the views and wishes of students with SEND are heard and taken into account in the planning and reviewing process.
- To work with parents and carers where appropriate, to ensure that young people with SEND participate in and have full access to learning pathways.
- To work with students, parents, carers and education providers to ensure that young people with SEND are ready for and have access to post 16 training education or employment.
