An Overview of the School's Policy on SEND
Farlingaye High School is committed to providing high quality teaching and learning provision. We promote equality and appreciation of diversity; promote and achieve the highest standards of behaviour; develop independence and creativity; develop positive links with parents and the local and wider community. We have a range of interventions across the school to support children with SEND.
Identifying students’ additional needs
At different times in their education students may have a special need or disability. Typically this student will have a significant difficulty in learning relative to the majority of other students or has a disability which prevents or hinders them from accessing educational opportunities compared to others in mainstream classes.
Where a learner has an identified SEND we will offer provision that supports the student to access the normal differentiated curriculum.
Parents/carers are informed termly of their child’s progress and there are regular opportunities for discussion. A student’s lack of progress may be for many reasons and it is not always the case that these students have SEND. These students may just need a little extra help and support at times to get back on track.
