Special Educational Needs

The school aims to provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum for all its pupils. Some children have special educational needs which means that provision is made via intervention This may be because of a learning difficulty, a health issue or a disability. The school also acknowledges that children who are exceptionally advanced or talented may also have specific needs.

There have recently been changes made to support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Changes have been put into place to provide greater support for children with SEN. (Jan 2015)

One of the main changes is the replacement of statements of special educational needs, these are being replaced with a single Education, Health and care (EHC) plan for children with complex needs. For those with SEN or disabilities who do not need an EHC plan, we are introducing SEN Support. This replaces School Action and School Action Plus.
