Special Educational Needs/Disabilities

The SEN code of Practice reflects the new statutory framework 2014 for inclusion and is a graduated approach to matching provision for pupil’s special educational needs.

The SEN categories are:

  • Communication and interaction.
  • Cognition and learning.
  • Social, mental, emotional health, sensory and/or physical disability.
  • EHC Assessment.

SEN includes any child who may require extra support because of a cognition/learning difficulty, a social, mental, emotional difficulty or a communication and interaction difficulty, a sensory or physical disability albeit temporary or permanent.

All children including those with special educational needs and those with disabilities admitted to the school have access to the full curriculum offered by the school.

Teaching Assistants support children with Individual Education Plans in classrooms

Disabled Facilities

The school buildings have the following disabled facilities:-

  • Wheelchair ramps and access to the building.
  • Disabled toilets.
  • Handrails and lever taps in some of the toilet blocks.
  • We have an Accessibility Plan which can be viewed through school.
  • The school is committed to inclusion and will adapt any aspect of the building to facilitate this.
