Special educational needs and disabilities
At Wootton Wawen CofE Primary School we are proud to have a positive ethos of nurture and inclusion for all our children that have additional or special educational needs. All staff, in liaison with parents, work hard to ensure the needs of all children with any additional need are supported and challenged.
All teaching staff endeavour to ensure that all children make progress and achieve to the best of their ability regardless of their starting point, this includes progress socially, personally, morally and spiritually; regardless of their gender, ethnicity, religion, social background, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs. We recognise that sometimes children may need extra support to achieve to their full potential so we have access to wide range of interventions and support.
The SEN Code of Practice is statutory guidance for organisations that work with and support children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. It is a set of guidelines that the DfE say local authorities and schools should follow. It divides needs into four categories; Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and Sensory and Physical. A child or young person may have SEN if they:
- have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than most learners of their age
- have a disability which prevents them taking part in similar learning to others of the same age
- need extra support that is ‘additional to’ and ‘different from’ that which other children of the same age get
