Special educational needs and disability (SEND)
Our SEN&D Lead is Sharon Landrey (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the assistant to the SENDCo is Mrs Denise Clarke.
We value all children equally whatever their background, and aim to provide a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere that does not discriminate on the grounds of gender, ethnicity, culture, religion or ability.
The school does all that it can to ensure equal access to the whole curriculum for all children with Special Educational Needs, which includes children with disabilities. Procedures are regularly updated following our adoption of the Disability Equality Scheme which is a legal requirement in all schools, along with meeting the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act.
The school does all that it can to ensure that all parts of the building are accessible to all children including those with Special Educational Needs, which includes children with disabilities.
Our aim is to ensure a match between the teaching styles and the learning needs at any one time of an individual child in order that he/she can make the best possible progress and fulfil his/her potential.
Once the specific needs of the child have been identified appropriate provision is decided and implemented by the class teacher, support staff and any specialist staff that may be required. This includes differentiated work, additional help as required and a wide range of learning opportunities.
