Special Educational Needs and/or a disability can affect many children throughout their school career and beyond. SEND is seen by our school as the child requiring provision that is additional to or different from the rest of the class. Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN.
There are now four broad areas of SEND:
- Communication and interaction (SLCN, ASC) This are of need includes children with Autism Spectrum Condition and those with Speech, Language or Communication Needs.
- Cognition and learning (MLD, PMLD, SLD, SpLD) This includes any children with Specific Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties and Profound and Multiple learning Difficulties.
- Social, Emotional and Health Difficulties This includes any pupils who have an emotional, social or mental health need that is impacting on their ability to learn.
- Sensory and/or Physical Difficulties This includes children with Hearing Impairment, Visual Impairment, Multi-sensory Impairment and physical difficulties.
From September 2014 the Government has asked all Local Authorities (LAs) and schools in the UK to publish in one place and keep under review, information about the services and provision they expect to be available for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND).
This is known as the Local Offer. If you would like to discuss the Local Offer in detail please contact the school office to make an appointment contact us.
The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choices for families and it will be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision available in the local area.
At St Anne’s CofE Primary School, we are committed to the equal inclusion of all pupils in all areas of primary school life. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all pupils and take into account the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
We have appointed a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children who works closely with the SENCO to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEN. We have a designated SEND Governor who works closely with the SENCO to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of SEND provision at St Anne’s.
The information included in our SEND Information Report can be found under the image headings or from the SEND menu. We will continue to add information on the website and welcome your feedback by using the on-line form.
