Our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) policy has been written with regard to the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice: 0-25 years (Sep 2014) and the Equalities Act (2010).
Students will be identified through ongoing assessments by the child or young person’s teachers, and brought to the attention of the SENDCO if they are making less than expected progress, in spite of high quality, differentiated classroom teaching targeted at the child or young person’s area of weakness.
To find out more about how we are implementing our SEND Policy please use the links below.

SEND Policy

Our SEND department has a dedicated and experienced team of Teaching Assistants who are led by the SENDCO. They work with staff and students in classrooms offering relevant support where needed. In addition, where identified, we provide a range of support outside of the classrooms to meet the needs of each student.
