What is the SEN Information Report?
St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School’s SEN Information Report sets out in one place – on our website – what we provide for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEN/D) throughout their time with us. It explains how we support them on to the next stage of their education. Our SEN policy gives more detail about our day to day procedures.
The policy has been designed to be as accessible as possible for all parties, if you do have any questions please see the Inclusion Manager
Camden Local Authority also publishes on its website a Camden Local Offer – setting out a wide range of information about the specialist services, schools, colleges and organisations that can provide support and information for families of children and young people with SEN/D. It explains the procedures for requesting an assessment for an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP)* – which has replaced the SEN statement*.
You will also find information about:
Where to go for advice and guidance on SEN and Disability matters
Leisure activities for children with SEN/D
Arrangements for resolving disagreements and mediation*
The purpose of our SEN Information Report
The purpose of our school’s SEN Information Report is to inform parents and carers about:
How we welcome into our school children with special educational needs and/or disabilities;
How we support them in all aspects of school life and remove barriers to achievement;
How we work in close partnership with parents/carers and children
How we make effective provision for all of our children with special educational needs and disabilities – SEN/D
We will keep our SEN Information Report under review – by asking parents and children what is working well and what they want to improve. Our SEN Information Report is reviewed annually in the Autumn Term.
