Great Dalby Primary School is an inclusive school. We welcome all children and work to provide the highest quality education regardless of disability or barriers to learning caused by a Special Educational Need. Our experienced team of teachers support and encourage all children to be the best they can be.
At our school we use the definition for SEN and for disability from the SEND Code of Practice (2014) https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25
SEN: A child or young person has special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A learning difficulty or disability is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others the same age. Special educational provision means educational or training provision that is additional to, or different from, that made generally for others of the same age in a mainstream setting in England.
Disability: many children and young people who have SEN may have a disability under the Equality Act 2010 – that is ‘a physical or mental impairment which has a long term and substantial adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day to day activities.’ This definition includes sensory impairments such as those affecting sight or hearing or long-term health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, epilepsy and cancer.
Please see our SEND policy and Information Report for further information or call and ask to speak with the school’s Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator (SENDCo), Mr Bryan.
The aims of the school are:
- To provide a happy and secure environment in which all children, including those with Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability, can feel positive about themselves.
- To ensure all children experience a broad and balanced curriculum which will enable them to develop to their full potential intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially.
- To ensure children with Special Educational Needs and/or disability have full access to the National Curriculum, extra-curricular activities and the wider curriculum of the school.
- To develop co-operation and communication with parents, support agencies and other schools
Mr Bryan is our school SENCO.
