Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

Here you will find information about the implementation of our policy for pupils with special educational needs. These documents will contain:

  • The arrangements for the admission of disabled pupils.
  • The steps you have taken to prevent disabled pupils from being treated less favourably than other pupils.
  • The facilities you provide to help disabled pupils to access the school.
  • The plan prepared under paragraph 3 of Schedule 10 to the Equality Act 2010 (accessibility plan) for:
    • improving the delivery to disabled pupils of information which is readily accessible to pupils who are not disabled
    • improving the physical environment of the school for the purpose of increasing the extent to which disabled pupils are able to take advantage of education and benefits, facilities or services provided or offered by the school
    • increasing the extent to which disabled pupils can participate in the school’s curriculum.

The Thrive Approach

We embrace the Thrive Approach. Thrive is a dynamic, developmental approach to working with children and young people that helps teachers and adults to interpret their behaviour and address their emotional needs. See our dedicated page or ask the Inclusion Team if you would like more information.

Local Authorities have a duty to publish a "Local Offer", setting out in one place information about provision they expect to be available in their area across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have SEN or are disabled, including those who do not have EHC plans.
