Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Crown Meadow First School, we promote inclusion and ensure that children with special educational needs, disability or medical conditions are not discriminated against in any way.
We follow the definitions outlined in the Sen and Disability Code of Practice (2014) when deciding whether a child has a Special Educational Need. For more information on this please refer to our School Information Report.
Our school has an Accessibility Plan aimed to ensure that:
· All pupils have equal access to and participation in the school curriculum.
· Accessibility for disabled pupils/parents/visitors is enhanced.
· All pupils/parents have access to information.
In their planning, teachers account for the needs of each child, and where extra provision is required the teacher and the SEND team assess the child’s needs carefully. A map of provision, which matches teaching strategies, resources and/or extra adult support for the child’s individual learning requirements, will then be provided and reviewed termly.
For those pupils who need it, additional support and advice is given by outside agencies, with whom we work closely with.
For more information on our SEND policies please see the documents below.
