All of our policies respond to the Special Educational Needs of the pupils and this policy should be read in conjunction with all others, notably the Review, Child Protection, Assessment and Recording, Personal Development, Leavers Programme, Equal Opportunity, Literacy, Care and Behaviour policies.
The governing body and teaching staff strive to ensure that necessary provisions are made for all pupils with Special Educational Needs and, where the Headteacher has been informed by the Local Education Authority that a pupil has Special Educational Needs, those needs will be made known to all who are likely to teach them.
Staff and governors are aware of the importance of identifying and providing for those pupils who have Special Educational Needs. The Headteacher, staff and governors review the policy for pupils with Special Educational Needs annually, and make it available to parents at any time.
Staff ensure that children with Special Educational Needs join in school activities so far as is reasonably practical and compatible with pupils receiving the necessary special educational provision.
