SEN Information Report
All children are valued , respected and welcomed to our school whatever the level of their educational or physical ability. We seek to raise the achievement, remove barriers to learning and increase physical and curricular access to all. The school recognises that all children are different and that some have particular needs in one or more areas of development, which affects their performance in school and other situations. We realise that a whole school approach to helping children learn assists them with specific learning difficulties or special need. The school has wheelchair access and a disabled toilet.
We have a comprehensive SEN policy which is regularly reviewed and updated. This explains fully how our policy is implemented. The local offer provides information for children and young people with special needs (SEND) and their parents/carers in a single place. It provides information on what services children can expect from a range of local agencies, including education, health and social care. Knowing what is out there gives you more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for your child. The local authority publishes a local offer on their website - http://www.northyorks.gov.uk/article/26714/What-is-the-local-offer and each school is required to publish their own version of the local offer.
