SEND

We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum

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.

Helping Children with Autism Podcast
The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health have produced a special edition of their podcast about helping children with autism during the coronavirus pandemic. In this podcast, they discuss issues that may arise for autistic children including the disruption of closing schools, anxiety and obsessive behaviours. They focus on practical tips like how to help manage anxiety, maintain structure and support and explain the situation to young people. Additionally, tips on how to keep well as a parent and reliable sources for coronavirus updates. To listen to the podcast visit:https://www.acamh.org/podcasts/cornavirus-autism-a-parentsguide
