Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)

The school caters for all ability ranges. If a pupil is identified as having a special educational need or disability, extra support may be offered in the classroom or the pupil may receive additional support through an individual or group intervention. The child is also entered onto the school’s S.E.N.D record and their progress reviewed regularly in accordance with the S.E.N.D. Code of Practice.

Our more able pupils are challenged and extended within the framework of normal lessons and, when opportunities arise, are given access to extension activities beyond the classroom.

As part of the National Special Educational Needs Reform, local authorities are required to publish a ‘local offer’ which is intended to provide information about provision available to children with special educational needs in the local area. All schools have been asked to detail answers to 14 questions that families of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, may find helpful. This is also referred to as the SEN Information Report. Please find a copy of this report below. 

There are also links to the school’s provision map that sets out how we support all pupils, in the areas of:

  • Cognition and learning
  • Communication and interaction
  • Sensory and physical
  • Social, mental and emotional health 

The different layers of support that we offer are referred to as:

Wave 1 - provision for all pupils.

Wave 2 - provision for some pupils who get the support listed in Wave 1, but also receive some additional support.

Wave 3 - provision that is highly individualised for pupils who require an extra layer of support, as well as the support listed under Waves 1 and 2.

Our provision maps (copies below) show examples of support that children may receive in the different phases of the school e.g. in Foundation Stage or Upper Key Stage 2.
