SEND

Special Educational Needs and Disability

 

We refer to the term “Special Educational Needs” if a child:

 

  1. Has significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of his or her age in one or more areas of learning. Academic criteria are adhered to when making a decision. The threshold for each year group varies.

 

  1. Has a disability which either prevents or hinders him or her from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided in schools within the area of the Local Authority concerned for children of similar age.

 

The difficulty or disability may relate to:

 

  • communication and interaction
  • cognition and learning
  • social, emotional and mental health
  • sensory or physical needs

 

For more details, please read our school's SEND report for parents below:

Appointments can be made to meet with the School SENCO, Mrs Horsley to discuss specific concerns.
