Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

Dulverton Junior School is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education for all the children in our school. We believe that all children, including those identified as having Special Educational Needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life.

 

We believe that all children should be equally valued in school. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe.

 

Children have Special Educational Needs if they have a learning or physical difficulty which calls for special education provision to be made for them which is in addition to or different from the differentiated curriculum plan.

 

  • Teachers are aware of the importance of early identification and of providing for pupils with SEN whom they teach.

 

  • The views of the pupil are sought and taken into account.

 

  • Partnership with parents and carers plays a key role in supporting their child’s education and enabling them to achieve their potential. Our school will endeavour to support parents through the process of adjustment.

 

A new SEN Code of Practice came into place for all schools and Local Authorities in September 2014 and this is being referred to as the ‘Local Offer’. Details can be found here.

 

Our dedicated SEN Governor is Mrs Heather Hodgson.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning please contact our SENCO Sarah Campbell.
