SEND

MISSION STATEMENT

The school values and recognises the uniqueness of each individual child and acknowledge their fundamental right to be educated to their full potential in a safe, secure and caring environment. The school, which has a Christian heritage, will, in partnership with parents and the extended community, aim to make each day count for all.

INCLUSION STATEMENT

The SEN policy reflects the School’s commitment to inclusion. We believe that all children should have access to an appropriate education that affords them the opportunity to achieve their personal potential.

DEFINITION OF SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS

Children have special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty that calls for special educational provision to be made for them. These difficulties may be sensory, cognitive, physical, social or emotional and some children may have complex needs which cover a range of difficulties. This is in-line with The Special Educational Needs (SEN) Code of Practice, revised in 2014. (See also Disability Policy). Some pupils find work difficult because their first language is not English. They do not have special educational needs unless they also have a learning difficulty. Their needs are explained in our EAL policy.
