SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) Provision
Our SENDCO is Mrs H Shilvock who can be contacted via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In our school we recognise that each child is an individual and that some children need a little extra help with certain aspects of their school life. At Our Lady & St Werburgh's we aim to support all our children in the best way, so that they can flourish and develop in every aspect of their development.
SEND stands for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. According to the Code of Practice, a child has SEND if:
"they have a learning difficulty or disability that means that he or she has significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of the other children of the same age or
they have a disability which significantly prevents or hinders him or her from making use of the educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post 16 institutions."
We have produced some information to help you understand our approach to working with children and parents. If you have any further questions about our SEND provision, please get in touch with Mrs Shilvock - email@example.com
The Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND) Information Report
We have a more detailed Information Report for parents and carers about how we support children with Special Educational and Disability Needs. We hope that you find this useful and informative and will always be ready to reply to questions regarding our provision.
