Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) is the name given when children are having difficulty with learning or are experiencing some physical or emotional problem. The purpose of identifying these children is to provide support and help for them in school. The school employs a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator to help in this work. The children who fall into this group cover a range of ability levels. Some children cope well in the normal classroom with additional help from the class teacher while others may require a statutory Health and Education Care Plan and where further support by law must be provided.
Children entering The Beeches from another school will have any SEND information passed on and support will be continued. Other children might be placed on the SEND register as they move through the school. Whatever is the case, parents and carers are informed of this and involved in any decisions about the child.
