Special Educational Needs (SEN)

MISSION STATEMENT

We support and value the abilities of all our pupils. It is our duty to provide equal opportunities for every person in our care and a safe learning environment which caters to the needs of every child as an individual. We are committed to inclusion within the school curriculum and participation in all aspects of school life. We provide an exciting, creative and effective learning environment, recognising and responding to individual learning styles. We aim to help each child experience success and to reach their full potential by providing the highest standard of education and care.

A child has special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision made for them.

 

A child has a learning difficulty or disability if they:

  • Have significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or
  • Have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream school

Children are not considered to have a special educational need if they speak English as an additional language.

 

Our Aims

Our ethos is inclusive and we work hard with families and outside agencies to ensure the best possible educational outcomes for all of our children irrespective of their level of need.

Our aims are:

  • To identify children with SEN as early as possible and to ensure their needs are met
  • To provide an environment where barriers to learning and participation are reduced to a minimum
  • To provide all children with a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum that is differentiated to the needs and abilities of the individual
  • To ensure all pupils take a full and active part in school life
  • To provide a strong partnership between children, parents/carers and outside agencies to ensure a child’s needs can be met

 

Categories of SEND

Children’s SEN are generally thought of in the following main areas:

  • Cognition and learning - this includes children who have moderate or specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyspraxia
  • Communication and interaction - this includes children with speech and language delay and those with difficulties with social communication
  • Social, emotional and mental health - this may include children who may be withdrawn or isolated, disruptive, hyperactive or who lack concentration
  • Physical or sensory issues - this includes children with impairments including hearing or visual difficulties, or other physical difficulties

Special Educational Needs are categorised in this way in order to enable school to plan provision accordingly.
