This policy is in line with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice 2014 and is designed to provide a clear framework for its implementation in our school. This policy was created by the school’s SENDCO, in liaison with the SLT, the SEND Governor, all staff and parents of pupil’s with SEND.
Collingwood Primary is an inclusive school. All our policies are interlinked and should be read and informed by all other policies. In particular, the SEND policy is linked to behaviour, anti-bullying, medical and curriculum policies.
Our SEND information report for parents and children with SEN and disabilities can be found on our website. This SEND policy is written to comply with the 2014 Children and Families Act and its SEND Code of Practice together with the Equality Act 2010.
Enquiries about an individual child’s progress should be addressed at first to the class teacher since he or she is the person who knows the child best. Other enquiries can be addressed to Cate Storey – SENDCO. Please make an appointment with the school office if you wish to speak to the SENDCO.
