Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Broomhill First School, we believe that every child has an entitlement to learn, regardless of need and we understand that we have clear duties in regard to the support of learners with special educational needs (“SEND”) and/or disabilities under the Children and Families Act 2014 and Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years 2014 (the “Code”). 
At Broomhill, we use our best endeavours to support learners with SEND and we ensure that we make all reasonable adjustments to promote genuine inclusion of learners with SEND. Through our day-to-day practice and high-quality teaching and learning, we aim to maximise potential, develop basic self-care, support children to understand their own safety, teach social and interaction skills and make academic and personal progresses, by offering inclusion and equality at all stages of school life. Where and when necessary, we obtaining specialist support for pupils through a multi-disciplinary approach, as per the SEND Code of Practice.
“Where a learner continues to make less than expected progress, despite evidence-based support and interventions that are matched to the learner’s area of need, the school should consider involving specialists, including those secured by the school itself or from outside agencies.”  SEND Code of Practice paragraph 6.58 for schools
