SEN and Equalities
Designated SEND Lead - B Dawes
There are some children who may experience learning or emotional and behavioural difficulties in one or more areas of the curriculum. We keep a register of all these children. Small groups may be withdrawn by, or receive support from, additional teaching staff. We have a detailed policy for Special Educational Needs, which is reviewed annually and may be seen in school upon request. We have an Inclusion Manager who has direct responsibility for ensuring that the school has appropriate educational provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs. The Governor responsible for Special Educational Needs is Sarah Baker.
There are some children who are identified as having an exceptional ability or talent in one or more curriculum areas. These children are included on our Gifted and Talented register and their progress is carefully monitored and their needs are carefully planned for.
At Northwood Park Primary School we have a successful track record in meeting the needs of a wide range of pupils. All of our pupils take part in the educational and social activities provided. We recognise that pupils with learning difficulties in one area may be successful in another and celebrate their success.
Please download our SEND Information Report for detailed information about the arrangements we make that are ‘additional and ‘different’ for pupils with SEN.
The school complies with the Disability Discrimination Act 2001 by ensuring that the needs of disabled people are considered when planning the education offered by the school. We have substantial and extensive facilities throughout school to ensure disability access for children, staff and visitors.
Administration of Medicines at School
Non prescribed medicines will not be administered in school. For medication that children are required to take during the day, medication should display a printed label which clearly identifies the child, dosage and number of times required. This will be kept in school and administered by a member of staff who has received administering medication training. Parents must complete a heath care form upon the start of the child's medication.
SEND Parent Support Group
SEND Parent Support Groups happen regularly within school. This support group gives parents the opportunity to voice their opinions relating to SEND.
