Woodbridge Junior School Parents’ Information
SEN information Report 2014
Welcome to our SEN information report which is part of the Derbyshire Local Offer for learners with Special Educational Needs (SEN). We support the Derbyshire Local Offer and are supported by the Local Authority (LA) to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.
All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.
The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.
At Woodbridge School we are committed to working together with all members of our school community. This local offer has been produced with pupils, parents/carers, governors, and members of staff. We would welcome your feedback and future involvement in the review of our offer, so please do contact us. The SEND co-ordinator for Woodbridge is Gemma Slater and the Pastoral Manager is Lindsey Ford.
What is the Local Offer?
The LA Local Offer
- The Children and Families Bill will become enacted in 2014. From this date, Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer’.
- The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
The School SEN Information Report
This utilises the LA Local Offer to meet the needs of SEN pupils as determined by school policy, and the provision that the school is able to meet.
Your Child has Special Educational Needs. What can we at Woodbridge Junior School offer you?
At Woodbridge Junior School, we embrace the fact that every child is different, and, therefore, the educational needs of every child is different; this is certainly the case for children with Special Educational Needs.
