Description

In compliance with the new SEN Code of Practice and SEND Reforms, there is a graduated approach to the identification, provision and support for all students deemed to require special educational provision to be made for them at Cressex Community School. All students identified as needing additional provision will be placed on the SEN Register under one single SEN category and progress monitored via Individual Provision Mapping (this replaces the categories of School Action and School Action Plus). This Policy will set out our commitment to raising the aspirations and expectations for all pupils with SEN, including those identified as Gifted or Talented and/or who would benefit from aspiration-raising programmes.

The purpose of this document is to describe the provision we make for students identified as having a special educational need (SEN) and the principles by which we make that provision. For consistency and clarity the term SEN is used throughout this document. 

This school believes that every student has an entitlement to develop to his or her full potential. Educational experiences are provided which promote high achievement and personal development for each individual. The wide diversity of the school’s population is valued as a rich resource, which supports the learning of all. In this school, we recognise a student’s right to a broad, balanced, relevant and challenging curriculum, which is appropriate to their individual abilities, talents and personal qualities.
