Coughton CofE Primary

In this section

The government introduced a change to the law from September 2014 which resulted in changes to our provision for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

As a school, we welcomed the changes as they place more emphasis on creating a system that has more input from parents and is a more family centred approach.  As a result, we have adopted these changes and have updated our policies and procedures to be in line with them.  Our school’s Local Offer was discussed and produced with parents on the 2nd June 2014 and is continually monitored and updated yearly.  The SEND Information Report has also been produced in consultation with parents and is there to provide an anonymous account of what has been delivered to support children with SEND and their families. This is also reviewed yearly. 

Our SEND policy has also been reviewed and updated to be in line with the current legislation. 

Please contact the SENCo if you have any questions or concerns regarding SEND provision at Coughton C of E Primary School.
