Special Education Needs & Information Report
Our Inclusion Manager is Miss. Jenny Doherty.
At Saxon, we share the belief that all children have an equal right to a full and rounded education, which will enable them to achieve their full potential. We use our best endeavours to secure special educational provision for pupils for whom this is required, that is ‘additional to and different from’ that provided within the differentiated curriculum to better respond to the four areas of need identified in the Code of Practice (September 2014):
- Communication and interaction
- Cognition and learning
- Social, mental and emotional health
We ensure that both children and parents are appropriately involved in all discussions and decisions about individual support and provision. The children’s needs are always at the heart of our provision and decision-making.
At Saxon we pay attention to the 4 principles of Inclusion:
- We welcome all children regardless of race, gender, physical need or learning ability
- We set suitable learning challenges
- We respond to pupils' diverse learning needs
- We aim to overcome potential barriers to learning
The children at Saxon School are taught to help one another and respect each other's differences.
