About the SEND Local Offer

Local Authorities must publish a local offer, setting out in one place, information about provision that is available for children and young people in their area who have special educational needs (SEN) or disability.
The local offer covers:

  • Support available to all children and young people with SEN or disability from universal services such as early years settings, schools and colleges;
  • Targeted services for children and young people with SEN or disability who require additional short term support over and above that provided routinely as part of universal services;
  • Specialist services for children and young people with SEN or disability

Inclusion

Every child is an individual and children all learn at different rates with differing learning styles. At Crown Meadow First School and Nursery we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum within a happy, secure and stimulating environment where every child's effort is valued and full potential can be realised.

There may be a time in a child's schooling when individual needs become apparent. These needs are catered for by a differentiated curriculum which will involve the preparation of tasks and teaching methods to suit each child's ability. We advocate an "inclusive" approach for children with special educational needs, enabling them to access the full breadth of the curriculum within their class and peers.

We recognise that some children have ability or talent beyond their peer group and as a consequence require a curriculum with a greater degree of challenge and complexity than that of the rest of the class. This is achieved within an age appropriate classroom with the use of open questioning, problem solving and activities which promote the higher order thinking skills to develop existing knowledge, skills and understanding.

Should you have any concerns regarding your child's learning, progress or development, please talk to your child's class teacher in the first instance.
