Lowton West’s SEN Information Report September 2016

In September 2014, as part of the Children and Families Act 2014 and the new Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years (September 2014), local authorities and schools were required to publish information about services they provide for children with disabilities and Special Educational Needs. This is part of the ‘Local Offer’ published by Wigan Authority. The intention is to offer choice and transparency for families, as well as providing a resource for professionals to detail the range of services and provision locally.

The Wigan Authority Local Offer for Special educational needs and disability can be found at www.wigan.gov.uk/sendlocaloffer

As parents there are many questions you may have about what our school is able to do to meet your child’s needs when choosing a school for your child. We aim to answer many questions in this SEN Information Report about how school will contribute to the Wigan’s Local Offer as possible but should you have any other questions please contact Mrs Gould in school. Further detail about our provision for children with additional needs can be found in our SEND policy.

We provide effective support for children with special educational needs and disabilities, starting from our first contacts with parents and carers when a child enters our school. We make sure that additional needs are identified early and we offer a range of provision according to identified needs. We work with a range of other professionals, e.g. from Health, Wigan Family Services, Outreach support teams and Wigan Start Well services to make sure that all children receive the support they need to do well at school.

 

Our school’s SEN Information Report was initially prepared in collaboration with parents / carers, children and young people during Spring/ Summer 2015. It is reviewed on an annual basis and updated where appropriate more regularly.

At Lowton West Primary School we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with our families and other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.

Here at Lowton West Primary School we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress. Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their additional needs. The SENCO works closely with all staff and parents to ensure pupils with SEND are supported appropriately across school. The Designated Teacher for Looked after Children ensures all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and may also have SEND. Staff receive support and training from specialist teams within the authority in order to support children with additional medical conditions that may impact upon their learning. (Please see our SEND Policy, Supporting Pupils with Medical Conditions Policy, Accessibility Plan and Equality Policy and Plan.)
