SEN and AEN Information

All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils’ with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

Our school SENCo (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) is Mr Declan Filsell. He has dedicated time each week to support children and families. He oversees and co-ordinates support for those children who may need an extra bit of help in overcoming barriers to their learning. He is assisted by Mrs Anna Reid (FLO) and Helen Day (FLO) and Mrs Rose who support our families and children on a daily basis.

Once a term, the SEN Team will meet with class teachers at a Pupil Progress Meeting (PPM) to discuss individual needs and support for any children who are struggling emotionally or academically. Together with the class teacher, classroom strategies and/or individual or small group support will be planned and shared with parents and pupils, to ensure the best outcome for everyone concerned. Should you have any concerns about the progress or development of your child please contact your child’s class teacher in the first instance. If your concerns continue, please feel free to contact the SENCO on the details below.

From the 1st September 2014, under Section 65 (3) (a) of the Special Educational Needs (Information) Regulations, all schools are required to publish an SEN Information Report on their school websites.

This report must contain SEN information as is set out in the Schedule, as well as utilising the Local Authority (LA) Local Offer.

Please click here to view guidance and support on Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) on the Kent County Council website.

Consequently, the report should meet the needs of SEN pupils as determined by school policy and the provision that the school is able to determine.
