SEND

 

At St Matthew’s Bloxam we are an inclusive school, in which we want all children to reach their full potential regardless of any barriers to learning.

 

We strive to provide an education to all our children in line with Warwickshire’s Local offer. Find out more about Warwickshire's local offer here: https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/send

 

What is SEND?

 

A child may have Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) for any number of reasons. These needs can fall into one or more of these four broad categories:

 

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health
  • Sensory and/or Physical Needs

 

We view SEND as when a child’s … 

learning difficulty or disability calls for special educational provision, namely provision different from or additional to that normally available to pupils of the same age

SEN Code of Practice 2015

 

See our SEND Information Report below for full details of how we cater for a broad range of SEND. This  sits alongside our SEND Policy.

Some children may be especially vulnerable at this time of uncertainty. This may include (but is not limited to) children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), children who are ‘Looked After’ and children who are deemed to be Children in Need. These children may need extra support to ensure that they maintain good levels of well-being.
