General information

  • Each child on the SEND register has an ‘All about me’ which is their voice about their strengths, areas for development and important information that they would like to share with their teachers. Each child has a ‘Learning Plan’ which is created by the Inclusion Team to share with the student’s teachers. This has information about their SEND, information on exam access arrangements and strategies to support this student.
  • High-quality teaching is our first step in responding to students who have SEND.
  • In line with the recommendations made by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), teachers have developed a repertoire of these strategies they can use flexibly in response to individual needs and use them as the starting point for classroom teaching for all students, including those with SEND.
