What is SEND?
We believe that meeting every pupil’s needs is a shared responsibility, therefore are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs or abilities. Not all pupils with disabilities have special educational needs and not all pupils with SEN meet the definition of disability, but our SEN Policy covers the needs all of these pupils.
