School Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information
At Seven Stars Primary School, we believe passionately in the importance of inclusion and equality for all children and adults, and strive to ensure that these values are at the heart of our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) practices.
We will always involve parents and children in key decisions, as well as planning and reviewing progress; we know that parents are the first educators of their child and that we need their knowledge and co-operation to plan effectively.
We know that the earlier we identify SEND and provide support, the more successful our children will be.
We are committed to providing expert support and resources for children with SEND to fulfil their individual potential.
Our starting point is to guarantee a whole -school approach to providing for the needs of children with SEND. In other words, we make sure that all staff have the knowledge and skills to support all children, including those with SEND, throughout our School.
If you have any questions regarding your child, then please get in touch with your child's class teacher in the first instance and an appointment can be arranged with Mrs Walsh our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO)
In the documents below, you can read about our provision and how we support those children who have Special Educational Needs or Disabilities, and their families.
Arrangements for disabled pupils
Applications for admission of children with difficulties are welcomed and parents are asked to give the Headteacher details of the disability on application.
The Headteacher will arrange a meeting at a mutually convenient time to discuss the ways in which the child’s disability might hinder her/him from taking a full part in the life of the school and the ways in which such difficulties will be overcome. All areas of the school to which children have access are DDA compliant or have appropriate access arrangements to enable all children to take part.
The Headteacher will then make any arrangements necessary to enable the child to participate fully in all lessons and activities. These arrangements may include briefing staff, obtaining special furniture, making minor adaptations to the building, rearranging classroom furniture and/or employing support staff.
These may take time to put into place and may require advice and assistance from the Area Office or specialist agencies, so parents are urged to see the Headteacher as soon as possible to ensure that everything can be ready for the child’s first day at school.
