Federation of Briar Hill and St Margaret's Schools
SEND and Inclusion
Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo), Ruth Beeston, works across the Federation of Briar Hill and St Margaret’s CE Junior School. Both schools work closely together with the shared aim to:
- create a happy, educationally exciting and positive environment in which all pupils can develop to their full potential and become confident, independent individuals.
- identify, assess, record and regularly review pupils' special educational needs, encouraging parents and the child to be involved in planning support.
- upskill staff to support all areas of need including learning, emotional and physical needs through offering a wide range of robust CPD throughout the school year
- We are extremely proud of our SEND provision and of our inclusive curriculum that enables children to flourish, grow and shine.
We have excellent links with external supporting agencies who speak very highly of our provision.
Please see www.sendsupported.com for information about supporting specialist teachers with whom we work closely and for ways that parents and carers can support their child at home.
If you have any questions regarding special educational needs and disabilities then please arrange to speak to Mrs Beeston. She can be contacted by emailing email@example.com or through the school offices. Please see below policies for more information about our provision.
What is the Local Offer?
The Children and Families Bill became enacted in 2014. From this date, Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer’.The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area. As such, our school produces an updated annual SEND report that incorporates the requirements of the Local Offer.
