Special Educational Needs

Special Educational Needs

We offer a fully inclusive environment and welcome applications from all, including pupils with disabilities. To us, every child has the right to develop their full potential irrespective of their ability, race or gender.

We aim to work in close partnership with parents and carers in identifying any special educational needs (SEND) and in developing a suitable programme to meet these needs. A pupil has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. The term is largely used to define those who:

  • have a 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 facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools.

The Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014 states that: ‘All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they:

  • achieve their best,
  • become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and
  • make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training.’

We are committed to providing all pupils with equal, appropriate access to the curriculum regardless of any special need they may have. We intend to secure a culture and ethos in which:

  • all pupils are valued and diversity is celebrated;
  • all staff recognise their responsibility for ensuring provision for pupils with special educational needs and disability and strive to support access to the curriculum and full range of experiences on offer;
  • all pupils have the opportunity to grow, from their different starting points, intellectually, physically, spiritually, socially and emotionally through a carefully planned and balanced curriculum.

We want every child to feel secure and to be able to take advantage of all available learning opportunities. We believe that providing a calm, stable and caring Christian environment encourages children to develop as responsible citizens. By nurturing a love of learning in our pupils, and developing their key skills and personal qualities, such as team work, creativity, flexibility and thoughtfulness, we can help our children to become able and inspired learners.
