At our school we endeavour to ensure the full inclusion of all children whilst meeting their individual needs. Teachers provide differentiated learning opportunities for all children within the school and provide materials appropriate to children’s interests and abilities. This ensures that all children have full access to the school curriculum.
It is our responsibility to ensure that pupils with special educational needs or disabilities have the maximum opportunity to attain and achieve in line with their peers. Accurate assessment of need and carefully planned programmes which address the root causes of any learning difficulty are essential ingredients of success for these children. These will be provided, initially, through additional support funded from the devolved school’s budget.

The Local Offer
In September 2014 a new Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) was published. As a result, every local authority must identify education, health and social care services in their local area provided for children, young people and families who have Special Educational Needs or disabilities and include them in an information directory called the Local Offer.
