SEN Information Report

What kinds of Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) does the school provide for?

The school accommodates all SEND in line with The Equality Act 2010 and provision is available for all four areas of need as outlined in the 2014 SEND Code of Practice:

Communication and Interactiondifficulty in communicating with others, including children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Asperger's Syndrome, who may have difficulties with social interaction, language, communication and imagination. 

Cognition and Learning - where children may learn at a slower pace than their than their peers. Children may also have a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) such as dyslexia, dyscalculia or dyspraxia.

Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties - children may display challenging, disruptive or disturbing behaviour which may reflect underlying social, emotional and mental health issues. The school will seek to recognise and identify these underlying issues through our knowledge of the child. Other children may have disorders such as attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or attachment disorder.

Sensory and/or Physical Needs - Where children have a disability which prevents them from making use of the educational facilities generally provided and includes children with visual impairment, hearing impairment or a multi-sensory impairment. They require specialist support and/or equipment to enable them to access learning and all the opportunities that are available to their peers.
