What kinds of special educational needs are provided for at our school?
Our school is an inclusive school where every child matters; we aim to address children’s needs and support their development in the most appropriate way possible and celebrate effort and progress as much as achievement. Our school’s SEND policy document is available on this website, detailing our philosophy in relation to SEND.
We refer to the term “Special Educational Needs” if a child:
a. Has significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of his or her age in one or more areas of learning.
b. Has a disability which either prevents or hinders him or her from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided in schools within the area of the Local Authority concerned for children of similar age.
