Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure any the school can meet any needs appropriately.
Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement of SEN
Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. Please continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
You can view further SEND information by downloading the SEND Policy, Anti-Bullying Policy, Equality Policy, Respect and Positive Relationships Policy (Behaviour), Supporting Children with Medical Conditions Policy and Accessibility Plan which you can find in the school policies section of the website.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail, please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
