SEND Information

The Senco is Mrs S Falvey who can be contacted on the school number 01268 412888. All documentation regarding SEND can be requested from the School Office.

Admissions Policy:

The school aims to meet the needs of any pupil whom the parent wishes to register at the school as long as a place is available and the admission criteria are fulfilled. This includes pupils with disabilities who we anticipate might attend. The currently agreed admissions policy of the Governors makes no distinction with regard to pupils who have SEND. No pupil can be refused admission solely on the grounds that s/he has SEND except where the pupil is the subject of an Education, Health and Care Plan under the Children and Families Act 2014 and the Local Authority has indicated that the provision required is incompatible with that available at our school.

Special Educational Needs/and or Disability (SEND) Information Report 

All Basildon maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. 

All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a Special Educational Need/s and or disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction; Cognition and Learning; Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties; Sensory and Physical Needs.

What is the Local Offer?

The Children and Families Act requires Local Authorities to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability (SEND) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer.’ It is also an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area. The Local Offer can be found at: 

What is the School SEND Information Report?

This utilises the Local Offer to meet the needs of SEND pupils as determined by school policy, and the provision that the school is able to meet.
