What are special educational needs?
A student has Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) where their specific learning difficulty or disability calls for special educational provision, namely provision different from or additional to that normally available to students of the same age. Having a generally low ability, or English as an additional language does not mean that a student has special educational needs. Medical conditions which impact education are also classed as special educational needs.
Contact your child’s Head of Achievement and Year Leader who will be able to help in the first instance with concerns. They liaise closely with the SENDCo to support students within their year groups.
It is important to us at King’s Leadership Academy Warrington that parents and young people are involved in the planning and reviewing of provision put in place to support any additional needs. You will be invited to attend meetings to discuss progress and next steps with your child’s Academic Tutor at Parents Consultation Events and can request to meet with the SENDCo/SEND team to discuss your child.
You will be kept informed through reports sent home (three times each year) and parent’s evenings. If your child has a specific intervention you will be informed of this and you may be asked to attend a meeting in school to review progress.
