SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES (SEND)
Our school promotes inclusion and ensures that children with special educational needs, disability or medical conditions are not discriminated against in any way.
We follow the definitions outlined in the Sen and Disability 0-25 years Code of practice (2014) when deciding whether a child has a Special Educational Need. For more information on this please refer to our School Information Report.
Our school has an Accessibility Plan aimed to ensure that:
· All pupils have equal access to and participation in the school curriculum.
· Accessibility for disabled pupils/parents/visitors is enhanced.
· All pupils/parents have access to information.
In their planning teachers account for the needs of each child, and where extra provision is required the teacher and the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Leader assess the child’s needs carefully and develop a map of provision which matches teaching strategies, resources and/or extra adult support to the child’s individual learning requirement. At Stoke Prior First School, parents are actively involved in supporting their children’s learning.
For those pupils who need it, additional support and advice is given by outside agencies, with whom we work closely with.
For more information on SEND please see documents below.
