Section 324 of the Education Act 1996 requires the governing bodies of all maintained schools to admit a child with a Statement of Special Education Needs that names their school.
Here at Bollinbrook we believe that each child is unique and that God has granted each child different talents and abilities. Part of our approach to SEN provision within our school is to celebrate each child as an individual and to value progress in the widest sense.
As a Christian school, inclusion is at the heart of our mission and ethos. We believe that children’s needs in the first place should be addressed by quality first teaching, the differentiated curriculum and caring staff within a clear Christian community. We appreciate that if children are identified as having SEN this can be difficult for some parents and that is why good communication and working in close partnership are so important. We are keen that any special educational needs are identified and support is put in place but that a child is not defined or limited by his/her SEN.
Our SEN policy works alongside, and in conjunction with, the Local Offer offered by Cheshire East Local Authority. Bollinbrook C of E Primary School’s part of the Local Offer can be found on the Cheshire East Local Offer site. This includes information on Identification of SEN, Teaching Learning and Support, Keeping Students safe and supporting well-being, Working together and roles, Inclusion and Accessibility and Transition.
