This policy accepts the definition of SEN as set out in the SEN Code of Practice. It reflects the new approach to and arrangements for SEN outlined in the Children and Families Act 2014.
All the teachers in the school are teachers of children with Special Educational Needs. As such Hargrave Park School adopts a ‘whole school approach’ to SEND that involves all staff adhering to a model of good practice driven by quality first teaching, robust monitoring of provision and progress measures.
All staff will ensure children with SEND can join in the activities of the school together with pupils who do not have SEND, so far as that is reasonably practical and compatible with the pupil receiving the necessary special educational provision, the efficient education of other children in the school and the efficient use of resources.
All staff and governors in the school are aware of the importance of identifying and providing for children who have SEND.
The staff of Hargrave Park School are committed to identifying and providing for the needs of all children in a wholly inclusive environment.
