Special Educational Needs Local Offer

There are a wide range of reasons why a child may find it hard to learn. Some of these reasons may be short term and some of these long term. Many children will just follow a different pattern to their learning and development. Where children have a long term need that requires them to receive additional and different types of learning they will be recorded on the school SEN register.

All our staff are passionate about providing the very best education for every child regardless of how they learn. We are experienced and trained in meeting the needs of many common learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ASD, ADHD and SEMH. We have access to additional training and support to help us meet less common needs. We have a wide range of interventions available at the school.

If you are worried about your child's learning and think that they may have an additional need then please contact Mrs Cook.

From September 2014, the new SEN Code of Practice stipulates that every local authority must publish their Local Offer – this must be easily accessible and regularly reviewed.  It should signpost where to go for help, and should clarify any questions you have about the services your child may qualify for. 

The Local Offer for Kent can be found here. 

As a provider of SEN help our offer is based on our SEN policy, and includes the Mainstream Core Offer and our SEN Provision Map. 

Additional help and advice can be sought from Information, Advice and Support Kent (IASK).  They provide free, impartial and confidential advice about the options available and the educational issues faced by parents of children with SEN or physical disabilities.
