SEND Policy

At Sladefield Infant School, the wellbeing of the child is at the heart of everything we do and we seek to provide an inclusive ethos throughout the school. We believe that a child with SEN should, if appropriate and in the child’s best interests, have their needs met within our mainstream setting. They should have access to a broad and balanced curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and National Curriculum. We want to ensure that pupils with SEN receive equality of entitlement and, through reasonable adjustments where necessary, are integrated into all aspects of school life.

We strive to ensure that the SEN of children are appropriately identified, assessed and provided for, and that provision is monitored regularly. The school works in partnership with parents, the Local Authority and external agencies to provide the best possible provision for our SEN pupils. We believe that parents have a vital role in supporting their child’s education and a good partnership with school is essential. We value the importance of empowering our staff so that they have the confidence to be responsible and accountable for the progress and development of all pupils with SEN in their class. We will always ensure that our children have a voice in their SEN provision.
