SEND SUPPORT AT ST GILES JUNIOR SCHOOL
The school strives to be as inclusive as it possibly can be, welcoming all children and families. Our high expectations for all students extends to just that – ALL students.
For some children, arrangements must be made that go beyond the core offer to all our pupils in order to include them as much as possible in all that the school can provide. As such, we need to employ the skills of our inclusion team, led by Miss Davies (SENCo Leader). The guidance for SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) changed in 2014 and this page reflects not only these changes but the response to need that the school offers.
A school’s provision for SEND is defined as support which is additional to or different from that which is available to all students. This document is intended to give you information regarding the ways in which we ensure that children with SEND are educated, wherever possible, in an inclusive environment alongside their peers to enable each student to reach their potential. It may not list every skill, resource and strategy we employ in order to achieve this as these are continually developed and used to modify our provision to meet the changing requirements for individual pupils.
Additional information about how students with SEND can be support in school can be found on the the Warwickshire Special Educational Needs and Disability page - https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/send
