As a school we aim to enable pupils with Special Educational Needs to participate in the life and work of the school to the best of their ability, whatever their needs, by working together towards the removal of barriers and improving provision in line with our equal opportunities policy.
The school provides support for the special needs of children with or without statements and recognises that these needs can be identified as learning, physical, emotional or behavioural. Special Needs provision is additional, or otherwise different, to what would generally be provided for children of a similar age. We consider a working partnership with parents to be an essential and integral element throughout SEN provision.
Where possible the suitability of placement at Greenhill School for any child with Special Educational need will be determined by working with parents, LA officers and support agencies.
To meet the new SEND Regulations 2014 the Governors have collated a report containing SEN information about our school and provided a link to the Local Offer.
