Additional Needs (SEND)
Supporting Children with Additional Needs
In our school children with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) are included with all children under the term children with additional needs. Children with additional needs includes all children who, for whatever reason, need additional support or guidance to help them on their learning journey. These children might be children with SEND but they also include children who are Gifted and Talented or those children who, for whatever reason, are not on track (whatever their starting point) to make good progress.
All Schools are expected to publish their Local Offer - click HERE to take you to school website page where you will find our published Local Offer and our policies linked to Special Educational Needs and Disability.
The School's Governing Body robustly challenge the support offered to children with SEND to ensure outcomes are of the highest order. As part of their processes the SENDCo reports to the the Teaching and Learning Committee at each of their meetings as well as meeting the designated governor for SEND on a regular basis. Each year this Governor and the SENDCo meet and formulate a statement for publication. This year's statement can be downloaded by clicking HERE.
As a school we are committed to improving accessibility for all adults and children. The school's accessibility plan for 2019 - 2021 can be found by clicking HERE.
Cheshire East Information Advice and Support (formerly The Parent Partnership Service)
The Parent Partnership Service became the Cheshire East Information Advice and Support on the 1st September 2014.
It helps parents and carers whose children have special educational needs, from pre-school age until they leave school.
They support parents across Cheshire East. If you or your child's teacher think there may be a special educational need, they may be able to help.
Many children have difficulties learning at some stage of their school life and parents need information to help them make decisions about their child's education. Parent Partnership can explain how the education system works and how pre-schools, schools and local authorities aim to meet special educational needs.
