Special educational needs (sen)
If you wish to talk to us about Special Educational Needs (SEN) support and your child at Sheringham Primary School, you may want to talk to:
Sheringham Primary School is an inclusive school. We will ensure that all members of the school community treat all pupils with a positive and caring attitude and that every effort will be made to include all pupils in school life in its entirety. We adhere to the Equalities Act (2010) which is directed by the Code of Practice.
We value the individuality of all children. We hold a growth mindset, and high aspirations for all children. We dislike putting children in boxes with terms like ‘clever’ or ‘low-ability’ and instead encourage children to be resilient in the face of challenge, and persistent in reaching their goals.
We believe that we have a responsibility to ensure that all of our children succeed – not in a quick, superficial sense but in a deeper way where children can take the required skills and knowledge and apply them in complex ways.
"Education is not a race to see who can get to the end the fastest – we believe that we can extend and support all children to best prepare them for secondary school and life beyond."
SEN provision for Children and Young People at Sheringham Primary School
As part of the Children and Families Act 2013, Local Authorities are required to publish a ‘Local Offer’ which sets out the support that is available for children and young people with SEN in the local area.
Newham’s Local Offer is available on the Newham Website and informs parents of how to access services in their area and what to expect from these services.
Alongside this, schools are required to publish information about their arrangements for identifying, assessing and making provision for pupils with SEN. If you would like any further advice, please speak with one of our SENCO's
The following information outlines the support and provision pupils with SEN can expect at Sheringham Primary School. Our SEN Information Report includes our school offer, it tells you and our pupils and what Sheringham Primary School does to support children who may experience difficulties in their learning. It is important that you know how we help your child, who helps your child, and what you need to do if you are concerned about your child’s education and progress.
