We work with schools to develop inclusive practice, and provide support for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN). We aim to ensure that children and young people with SEN get the most out of their school life and maximise their achievements.
Support is provided to schools and early years settings by the following services;
Educational psychologists support inclusion through the use of psychology.
Specialist teachers and inclusion workers support children who are hearing or visually impaired.
SEN support team
Specialist teachers and inclusion workers provide advice and support for a range of learning and behavioural needs
SEN and statutory assessment service
Administer the statutory assessment process for children with SEN and manage placements at specialist provision. Funding for SEN is distributed via ‘funding for inclusion’. This is targeted to individual pupils and reflects the severity of needs, and the provision that needs to be put in place to meet those needs.
Most children with SEN will attend their local mainstream school. Others may attend a specialist inclusive learning centre (SILC). This could be full time, or part time in one of our mainstream secondary school, primary school or children’s centre partnerships. Some mainstream schools have additional resources for children with hearing or visual difficulties or with speech and language difficulties.
