Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
The 4 broad categories of SEND are:
- Communication and interaction
- Cognition and learning
- Social, emotional and mental health
- Physical and sensory
A person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. At compulsory school age this means he or she has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others the same age, or, has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools.
Taken from 2014 SEN Code of Practice: 0 to 25 Years
If you have a concern about the support your child is receiving in school we strongly encourage you to make an appointment with your child’s class teacher to discuss this concern. If you feel your concern has not been resolved please do make an appointment with Mrs Johnson (Deputy Headteacher and SENDCO) who will endeavour to support you.
If, after liaison with the school, you still feel dissatisfied with the support your child is receiving you may choose to make a formal complaint.
If you would like to make a complaint we would refer you to our school Complaints Policy which outlines the complaints process.
