Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Provision
The Governing Body, in line with the SEND Code of Practice, are concerned to do their best to secure the necessary provisions for all pupils who have special educational needs in order to meet those needs.
The Governors operate and fully support a Policy of Equal Opportunities and children with SEND are fully integrated with their peers, although a Teaching Assistant or Primary Support Teacher may withdraw children for specific work outside the classroom as well as support them in the classroom.
The School's admission policy ensures that pupils with SEND are treated equally. The Governors are keen to involve the parents/guardians as fully as possible in any school based action and parents/guardians will be encouraged to attend all review meetings. We accept that the child has a right to be heard and encouraged to participate in decision making about the provisions to meet their educational needs.
There is a statutory requirement for all schools to produce an accessibility plan (SEN and disability Act 2001) a copy of which is available below. We are an inclusive school and we will strive to ensure accessibility for disabled pupils.
Our SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) is Mrs McDonald.
The School has a designated Governor (Mrs. G. Pattison) to oversee the implementation of our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy.
