Special educational needs or disability (SEND)

All Kingston maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. Schools are expected to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress. All schools are supported by the local authority to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a special educational needs and disability being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.

What kinds of SEN are provided for at King Athelstan?

At King Athelstan we can make provision for every kind of frequently occurring special educational need without a statement of special educational needs / Education, Health and Care Plan, for instance dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language needs, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, learning difficulties and behaviour difficulties. There are other kinds of special educational need which do not occur as frequently and with which the school is less familiar, but we can access training and advice so that these kinds of needs can be met.

What policies does King Athelstan have to identify children with SEN and assess their needs?

The school has an ‘Inclusion and special educational needs and disability policy’ which sets out in detail how children at the school are identified as having SEN and how their needs are assessed. A copy of this policy can be made available to parents/carers upon request.
