SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities)
Mrs S. Herselman
Under the new code of practice we are required to publish a SEND Information Report describing the provision we have in place for pupils with SEND. Some of this information is included in our SEND Policy.
Please download a copy of the provision offered by The Rackham C of E Primary School which can be found at the bottom of this page.
If you require any further information please feel free to contact Mrs Herselman (SENDCO) by telephone on 01353 662436 or via email email@example.com
SEND Local Offer in Cambridgeshire
Cambridgeshire Schools: SEND Information Hub (Local Offer) (cambridgeshire.gov.uk)
The Local Authority is committed to all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, making the best possible progress in their educational setting which, wherever possible and with the agreement of the family or the young person, will be in a mainstream setting.
The local offer is part of the reforms to support for children and young people with SEND under the Children and Families Act 2014.
All Cambridgeshire schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. Maintained schools have access to a range of professional services provided by the Local Authority which include the Educational Psychology Service, the Autism Outreach Service, the Sensory Support Service and the Specialist Teacher for pupils with ADHD.
An inclusive school may offer the following ‘additional and different’ arrangements to support children with SEND. This provision is over and above ‘High Quality Teaching’ which is the entitlement for all children.
Children/Young People in school will get support that is specific to their individual needs.
This may all be provided by the class teacher or may involve:
- Advice and support from the School’s Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator and other members of staff within the school.
- Staff who visit the school from the Local Authority central services such as the Educational Psychologist, Specialist Teachers for autism, ADHD or from the Sensory Service (for students with a hearing or visual need).
- Staff who visit from outside agencies such as the Speech and Language Therapy (S<) Service.
The Rackham uses the Graduated Approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
