SEND Inclusion Policy May 2019
We aim to provide an environment where all children are able to achieve their potential. The school’s Inclusion Policy follows government’s guidelines, and is available in school for parents to inspect.
Children experiencing difficulties with learning or emotional and behaviour difficulties, or who have physical difficulties which affect their learning, will be included on the school’s register of children with Special Educational Needs. We have an excellent mentor team and Parent Support Advisor who can work with you and your children as needed.
The needs of more able and talented children are also considered and provision made to ensure that they are suitably challenged.
We realise the importance of early identification and intervention to give children the support to which they are entitled.
We endeavour to work with parents of children on the Special Educational Needs Register to achieve excellence for all.
Children with Additional Needs or SEND have provision maps detailing the extra support they receive in school. Copies of these are available for parents, so they can support us in helping their child to achieve them. Parents whose children have provisions maps are sent a letter informing them of the extra support their child is receiving.
Parents are also informed of their child’s progress at the usual parents’ consultation evenings.
School benefits from the support of Outside Agencies including Learning Support, the Psychological team and Speech and Language Therapy. Should school feel unable to meet the child’s needs within the normal resources available to school, an application will be made, with parents’ agreement for either High Needs Funding or an Education Health and Care Plan which will access appropriate provision for the child. Parents are fully consulted and are entitled to appoint an independent parental supporter to guide them through the process.
Parents have the right to appeal if they are not satisfied with the provision made for their child.
We fully support the policy of inclusion for children with SEND and aim to follow best practice in catering for individual children’s needs within a mainstream environment.
The school’s special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Mrs Chapman and she will be happy to discuss any concerns parents may have with regard to the school’s Additional Needs or SEND provision.
