A school’s provision for SEND is defined as support which is additional to or different from that which is available to all students. This document is intended to give you information regarding the ways in which we ensure that children with SEND are educated, wherever possible, in an inclusive environment alongside their peers to enable each pupil to reach his or her full potential. It may not list every skill, resource and strategy we employ in order to achieve this as these are continually developed and used to modify our provision to meet the changing requirements for individual pupils.
If you would like further information on how the LEA supports families of children with SEND, please go to:
From September 2014 a new Special Educational Needs Code of Practice will introduce changes to the law for children and young people with SEND. Statements of Special Educational Needs will be replaced with an Education, Health and Care Plan for those children and young people with complex needs. For children with less complex needs but who still require support, there will be a new system called Special Educational Needs (SEN) Support which replaces School Action and School Action Plus.
At Michael Drayton Junior School we strive for inclusion for all children and support pupils with a range of special educational needs, with varying degrees of complexity. These needs can impact the child’s capacity to learn in all areas or be more specific. We support children with the following areas of need:-
* Communication and Interaction difficulties (such as Speech and Language difficulties and Autistic Spectrum Disorders)
* Cognition and Learning (such as specific literacy/ numeracy difficulties)
* Social, Mental and Emotional Health
* Sensory and/or Physical (such as visual or hearing impairment and children with medical needs).
We hope that this information is helpful to you.
