Every child at Richard Lander School is special and should experience success and reward wherever possible. Each individual should be given the opportunity to grow in confidence and to achieve to his or her potential. There can be barriers to learning for any child at any time, or of course such barriers can be on-going.
Within this broad framework it is important that we support those students who, for whatever reason, are not able to access the curriculum or who may have emotional or social issues, so that their needs are met and they are able to thrive.
Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) work means that students with any such need are properly identified, supported and their progress and welfare is monitored. Students are very much involved in this process as well as their parents, through the Individual Education Planning process. We also have effective communication with our primary partner schools, that we ensure a positive and successful transition as students enter the secondary school phase.
Further details of the school’s SEND provision can be found in the Richard Lander School SEND policy document.
Please feel free to contact Kerry Towers, SENDCO, should you have any queries or concerns.
