SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITY
AT PELSALL VILLAGE SCHOOL
"Children have special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. Children have special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them." (Revised Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs, November 2001).
Therefore, at Pelsall Village School, we will always endeavour:
• to ensure that all pupils have access to a broad and balanced curriculum;
• to provide a differentiated curriculum appropriate to the individual’s needs and ability;
• to ensure the identification of all pupils requiring SEND provision as early as possible in school;
• to ensure that SEND pupils take as full a part as possible in all school activities;
• to ensure that parents of SEND pupils are kept fully informed of their child’s progress and attainment;
• to ensure that SEND pupils are involved, where practicable, in decisions affecting their future provision.
At Pelsall Village School, we recognise that many pupils will have special needs at some time during their school life. In implementing this policy, we believe pupils will be helped to overcome their difficulties. Whilst many factors contribute to the range of difficulties experienced by some children, we believe that much can be done to overcome them by parents, teachers and pupils working together.
