Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities

SEN Policy and Procedures

Our school was one of the first in Brighton and Hove to complete our review of the SEND policy to meet the new requirements in line with the new SEND Code of Practice effective from 1 September 2014. You can view our policy by clicking on the link.

To provide an improved, compliant policy we co-produced our policy with families, children and staff. There was a strong feeling from our parents that as well as covering statutory information, it should also cover some aspects of practice and also a glossary of terms and agencies.

Hopefully our policy tells you all you need to know about how we support our children. If you have any suggestions for how this policy could be improved please let us know. You can email our Inclusion Leader jofish@woodingdean.brighton-hove.sch.uk

All schools also have to produce a SEND information report about how they meet and support pupils with special needs and/or disabilities. You can view ours by clicking on the link.

Have you seen our ‘Local Offer’? From September 2014, all schools have to produce a set of information that explains exactly how they address a range of issues with regard to special educational needs and disabilities.

Brighton & Hove were part of the ‘SE7 pathfinder’, helping the Department for Education trial new things in readiness for the new Code of Practice and led on this. Prospective parents might find this information especially useful.
