Special Educational Needs

Image result for colourful handprintThe Inclusion Manager  (SENCO) is responsible for managing the Special Educational Provision across the school. The school operates a vast range of support and intervention for pupils in each year group.

The system for supporting children and young people with SEN and Disability recently changed.

Statements of Special Educational Needs and Learning Difficulty Assessments (LDA) are being replaced with a single Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan for children and young people with complex needs.  The EHC plan will place much more emphasis on personal goals and will describe the support your child will receive while they are in education or training.

Support for those without EHC plans

For those with SEN or disabilities who do not need an EHC plan, ‘SEN support’ has been introduced, which replaces School Action and School Action Plus.  Schools and Nurseries must work with the child’s parents or carers when agreeing what support they will provide and what this support will achieve, drawing in additional resources as needed, setting clear targets for progress, and tracking how it is working.

A new SEN&D whole school policy is now available via the policy tab.
