Special Educational Needs (SEN) Report

OUR ETHOS

King’s Ford Infant School and Nursery is inclusive and aims to meet the needs of every pupil. We recognise the importance of quality teaching and that some pupils will, at some stage, require a more personalised approach to enable them to meet their potential.  We want our school to be a safe, secure and happy environment where children feel valued and are able to take part in a balanced, relevant and stimulating curriculum. We place the child at the centre of everything we do. We listen to their views and work closely with parents and carers. We value our relationships with other local schools and we work together to provide the best possible outcomes for the children in that partnership.  We will work within the requirements of the latest SEN Code of Practice as required by the government.

 

THE PURPOSE OF THIS INFORMATION REPORT for children with SEN

  • how we welcome into our school children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)
  • how we support them in all aspects of school life and remove barriers to achievement
  • how we work in close partnership with parents/carers and children
  • how we make effective provision for all of our children with SEND

We will keep this information report about SEND under review by asking parents and children what is working well and what they want to improve.

 The next review date for our information report is April 2018.
