School SENCO: Mrs C Jones

If you have any enquiries or concerns relating to the SEN provision in school, please contact the office and ask for the above person.

Definitions of special educational needs (SEN) taken from section 20 of the Children and Families Act 2014.

A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:

a) have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or

b) have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.

A child under compulsory school age has special educational needs if they fall within the definition at (a) or (b) above or would do so if special educational provision was not made for them. Children must not be regarded as having a learning difficulty solely because the language or form of language of their home is different from the language in which they will be taught.

LINGDALE IS A MAINSTREAM PRIMARY SCHOOL

WITH AN INCLUSIVE ETHOS.

The aims of our policy and practice in relation to special educational need and disability in this school are:
• To make reasonable adjustments for those with a disability by taking action to increase access to the curriculum, the environment and to printed information for all.
• To ensure that children and young people with SEND engage in the activities of the school alongside pupils who do not have SEND.
• To use our best endeavors to secure special educational provision for pupils for whom this is required, that is “additional to and different from” that provided within the differentiated curriculum, to better respond to the four broad areas of need:
1. Communication and interaction,
2. Cognition and learning,
3. Social, mental and emotional health,
4. Sensory/physical.
• To request, monitor and respond to parent/carers’ and pupils’ views in order to evidence high levels of confidence and partnership.
• To ensure a high level of staff expertise to meet pupil need, through well-targeted continuing professional development.
• To support pupils with medical conditions to achieve full inclusion in all school activities by ensuring consultation with health and social care professionals in order to meet the medical needs of pupils.
• To work in cooperative and productive partnership with the Local Authority and other outside agencies, to ensure there is a multi-professional approach to meeting the needs of all vulnerable learners.
