Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Slinfold we acknowledge the individual needs of our children and employ strategies to meet them. These strategies may include using different resources or providing a child with additional group or individual support.
A child who receives additional support is monitored closely through a process of Assess – Plan – Do – Review which is in line with the requirements of the SEND Code of Practice (2014). The parents/carers of children receiving additional support are kept informed about their child’s progress through both verbal and written feedback. The school acknowledges the importance of working closely with parents/carers and their views are always sought.
Sometimes the school may also draw on the expertise of outside professionals like Speech Therapists and Educational Psychologists.
We are committed to providing a full and inclusive curriculum for all our children. All areas of the school are accessible and we have a purpose built physiotherapy room and a hygiene room. Both of these rooms are well equipped and complete with hoists.
Further details on how the school and West Sussex support children with SEND can be found in the Local Offers.
Our coordinator for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is Mrs Michelle Green available on the school telephone number 01403 790253.
