SEND

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Blue bar

At Cheriton Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve well at school.

Quality first teaching is vital; however for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.

At Cheriton Primary School all staff take responsibility for Inclusion under the leadership of the SENCO.

If you have any concerns regarding your child/children then please either talk to their class teacher or contact The SENCO, Mr Jon Allcock, who can be reached on 01303 290548.

Changes to SEND

In this section of the website we will outline the recent changes to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and what this means for our children at Cheriton Primary School.

The new Code of Practice

As of September 1st 2014, a new Code of Practice for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, (SEND), was introduced by the Government.  This contains statutory guidance for schools following the changes made to the “Children and Families Act 2014”.

A “Parent/Carer Guide” to the new SEN Code of Practice outlines what provision should be made by schools.  You can find this guide by clicking on the following link:

The Local Offer

Part of the changes made include a requirement that all local authorities produce a “Local Offer” outlining what the authority offer to support children with SEND.  You can find this by clicking on the following link:

Our Information Report and SEND Policy

As a school, we are also required to set out our own “Local Offer” setting out what our school will do to support children with SEND.  This will be set out in our Information Report and in our new SEND Policy.
