Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

Calderstones School aims to provide meaningful and effective learning support for all pupils with Special Educational Needs.

We follow a graduated approach to SEN support, providing inclusive classroom environments to ensure that pupils make the best possible progress.

We aim to create a safe, caring and supportive setting for pupils to develop into young adults who are well prepared for when they move on to their next phase of education, employment or training.

SEN Policy Aims & Objectives

  • To create an inclusive environment that meets the special educational needs of each child
  • To adopt a whole school approach to SEND support where SEND pupils are fully integrated into mainstream classes
  • To ensure that the special educational needs of children are effectively  identified, assessed and provided for
  • To make clear the expectations of all partners in the process:
  • To enable all children to have full access to all elements of the school curriculum

  • To ensure that parents are able to play their part in supporting their child’s education

  • To ensure that our children have a voice in this process and develop skills for life

  • To operate a “whole pupil, whole school” approach to the management and provision of support for special educational needs

  • To provide support and advice for all staff working with pupils with special educational needs
