Sherington Primary School is committed to Inclusion and we aim to provide an appropriate and high quality education for all our children.  We believe that all children have an entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. We are striving to enable all children to reach their full potential, including those with a gift or talent or a special educational need. Special Educational Needs may be identified before entry or once the pupil is attending school, when a parent or a member of staff may identify them. These needs are discussed with parents, in confidence, at the earliest opportunity. Children who are identified as having SEN are supported in school through the creation of  Individual Education Plans which will help them meet their identified targets. The plan is reviewed regularly. The school works in partnership with parents to support a pupil’s development and address his or her needs to enable the pupil to achieve his or her potential. Extra support is provided for pupils at ‘SEN support’ including the use of  outside agencies to provide additional support.

If you would like any further information, please contact the school. Gail Tippett, Inclusion manager

Complaints regarding the provision of children with Special Educational Needs (SEN)

The DfE guidance regarding complaints relating to a school’s SEN support is as follows,

“If you want to complain about a school’s SEN support, you should do it while your child is still registered at the school. 

This includes complaints that the school has not provided the support required by your child’s SEN statement or education, health and care (EHC) plan.”

If you have concerns, or wish to make a complaint regarding your child’s SEN support a meeting should be requested with the Inclusion Manager in the first instance.  If an agreeable resolution cannot be met the complaint should be escalated in the usual way, as outlined in the Complaints Policy.  The local authority’s Parent Partnership Service can provide further advice and guidance on persuing a complaint regarding your child’s SEN provision and support.
