As a school we are mindful of and comply with expectations of the SEN Code of Practice and Disability Discrimination Act as shown in our SEND Policy. We use different interventions and approaches to address specific areas of need and would look carefully at your child’s individual needs when deciding how best to support your child.
We have developed a Special Needs Information Report which gives more information on how we support children with Special Educational Needs in our school. Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) is Jennie Gill, who can be contacted through the school office (01629 732240, firstname.lastname@example.org).
More information on support available within Derbyshire can be found on the Derbyshire Local Offer website.
If a child requires any special education then arrangements are made for this within the normal school structure laid out in the school’s policy on SEND, which is reviewed annually by the governors. The progress of children with Special Educational Needs is reviewed regularly and parents are involved in this process. We pride ourselves on being a fully inclusive school and we monitor and review our Accessibility Plan. We welcome applications to the school from children of all abilities and disabilities. We are also strongly committed to providing suitable challenge for higher ability Gifted and Talented children.
