SEN Information

A child or young person has Special Educational Needs if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

 

A child has a learning difficulty if he/she has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age or has a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age.

 

A special educational provision is an educational or training provision that is additional to or different from that made generally for others.

 

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) is split into 4 broad areas:

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Social, emotional and mental health difficulties
  • Sensory and physical needs
  • Cognition and learning

 

To ensure greatest success, access and opportunity for pupils with SEN or disabilities we:

  • Have a highly skilled inclusion team
  • Are committed to continuous professional development and update and undertake new training regularly
  • Regularly review our accessibility plan
  • Deliver a range of high quality interventions/strategies
  • Work closely with a range of external professionals
