Special Educational Needs

At Christ Church CEP Academy School, we strive to meet the needs of all pupils within our school in a safe and caring environment. All staff are aware of SEN within the school and receive high quality information and training. We are committed to ongoing training and staff development. We aim to quickly identify pupils, who are making limited progress and provide targeted interventions and support to meet their needs. We ensure that parents are fully aware of the SEN process and informed of their child’s learning at regular points throughout the year. We realise and understand the needs of each child will vary hugely even if there is more than one child with the same additional need. Commitment to parents is an important factor to us and we work hard to understand each child's unique situation by speaking and listening to parents. We see each child as an individual. We are a fully inclusive school and work alongside the Local Authority, Health Professionals and community organisations to find the most appropriate and effective support for pupils within our care.

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 Hogben - Special Needs Co-coordinator (SENCO). 


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.
