The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice states that:
“A pupil has SEND where their learning difficulty or disability calls for special educational provision, that is provision different from or additional to that normally available to pupils of the same age.”
The SEND Code of Practice sets out four broad categories of need. These are
- Communication and Interaction
- Cognition and Learning
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
- Sensory and Physical Needs
We are committed to ensuring that every child achieves the best possible outcomes and our practices and procedures ensure that pupils' special educational needs are identified quickly. If additional specialist advice or support is necessary we will work with external agencies ie, NHS, educational psychologists and play therapists. We believe that a multi disciplinary approach should be taken to ensure that we meet the pupils' special educational needs.
If you wish to talk to someone about your children's needs, please speak to your child's class teacher or the SENDCO, Flora Antoniou.
