The 2014 SEND reforms placed a legal duty on schools and settings to publish information about the available extra support for children and young people. This information must be clear and meaningful so parents can use it to understand how their child will access support if they need it.
The main sources of SEND information for parents to access from a school are:
- SEN (Special Educational Needs) or SEND (Special Educational needs and Disability) Policy
- Accessibility Policy
- SEN Information reports
A SEND Policy will include technical details whereas SEN information reports should be written for parents using clear, meaningful and helpful language.
We believe that all children should be equally valued in school. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe.
We adhere to the SEND Code of Practice, as well as the Diocese of Westminster and Hackney guidance on provision for children with SEND in mainstream schools. Our commitment to inclusive practices is evident in throughout our school policies and procedures, such as those available to download below.
