Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities


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.
