SEND

Meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

 

Significant changes to the way in which children's needs are met have been introduced by the government.

The Children and Families Act 2014 brings a new Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Code of Practice which describes the changes and new requirements. The new law comes into force on 1st September 2014 and applies to children and young people with SEND from age 0 – 25.

If you wish to access the new act, published August 2014, please follow the link below:

At Wallbrook we will continue to provide the support that every child needs. Working alongside parents and carers to assess, plan, deliver and jointly review support arrangements will make sure that all children learn successfully.

 

If you have any concerns about your child's progress please do not hesitate to contact Mrs A. Bashir-Pugh – the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO).
