SEND - Special Educational Needs and Disability

At Welshampton Primary School, we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.

 

Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN.

 

At Welshampton Primary School, the SENCO ensures all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who have SEN. The SENCO works in close partnership with children, staff, families and outside agencies.

Our aim is to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.

 

There are now four broad areas of SEND, these are:

  • Communication and Interaction
    This area of need includes children with Autism Spectrum Condition and those with Speech, Language and Communication Needs
  • Cognition and Learning
    This includes children with Specific Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
    This includes any pupils who have an emotional, social or mental health need that is impacting on their ability to learn
  • Sensory and/or Physical Difficulties
    This area includes children with hearing impairment, visual impairment, multi-sensory impairment and physical difficulties

 

Further information can be found in our SEND Information Report.

Local Authorities (LA) and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is called The Local Offer and can be accessed via our 'Local Offer' link
