Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The Government has published a range of provisions to improve the quality and scope of support available to children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), and their families (Children and Families Act 2014).

Included in these provisions is:

A requirement for local authorities to publish a “Local Offer” of services to disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

A requirement for individual schools to publish a SEN Information Report to outline provision for children and young people with disabilities and special educational needs.

At Cardinal Newman Catholic School we believe in achievement, ambition and progress for all children.

We aim to meet the needs of individual children through highly effective teaching and learning.

There is an emphasis on early identification of needs through supportive and preventative strategies which reduce barriers to learning.

We work in a flexible way to develop effective partnerships with children and their parents/carers, the SENCO, specialist teaching staff both within the school and external professionals such as speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) to ensure that the school can meet a broad range of special educational needs.

We undertake a rigorous system of monitoring children’s progress, supporting academic achievement and personal achievement by removing barriers to learning and use a wide range of strategies to foster a culture of lifelong learning and independent living skills for all children.
