OUR ETHOS

We have high aspirations for children with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities

We work hard to support them in all aspects of school life and remove barriers to achievement

We pride ourselves in working in close partnership with parents/carers and children

We will provide expert support and resources for children with SEN/D to enable them to flourish

We regularly ask parents and children what is working well and what they want to improve

THE PURPOSE OF OUR SCHOOL OFFER

We want to inform parents and carers about all aspects of SEN/D. All schools are required to make this information readily available and it is often referred to as the ‘Local Offer’. The purpose of our school’s local offer is to inform parents and carers about:

  •  how we welcome into our school children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEN/D)
  • how we support them in all aspects of school life and  remove barriers to achievement
  • how we work in close partnership with parents/carers and children
  • how we make effective provision for all of our children with SEN/D

We will keep our school offer under review –by asking parents and children what is working well and what they want to improve. Our next review date is July 2017.

WHO TO CONTACT FOR MORE INFORMATION

The first person to contact if you have any concerns about your child is your child’s class teacher. They are best placed to answer your queries and will always make themselves available to meet with you at a mutually convenient time. They are also often free for a quick chat after school. If you are new to the school, or you would like some more information, you can also contact our Assistant Head for Inclusion, Katherine Walsh who has overall whole school responsibility for SEN and inclusion. Katherine is also our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCO) who leads on the day to day operation of our SEN procedures and follows guidance in the SEN Code of Practice.

You can contact her at k.walsh@brookfield.camden.sch.uk
