Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
How we support children/young people with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.
We are a community school that provides an aspirational learning environment for all our students, regardless of their specific needs. We are committed to enabling all our students to achieve their full academic potential and to develop into an independent and confident member of society.
The web pages comply with:
Who are the best people at school to talk to about my child’s SEN?
- Subject teachers - responsible for planning the curriculum, differentiation and assessing your child’s progress.
- Form Tutor - responsible for personal and social development and health education.
- Ms M. Kampiwayo - Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) who has oversight of the day-to-day operation school's Special Educational Needs (SEN) provision to ensure that progress of pupils with SEN improves relative to those without SEN. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our SENCO co-ordinates support and interventions across the school, and from outside agencies. The SENCO will ensure that provision is made in accordance with the SEN and Disability Code of Practice.

The parents of pupils with disabilities have the right to make disability discrimination claims to the first-tier SEND tribunal if they believe that our school has discriminated against their children. They can make a claim about alleged discrimination regarding:
