Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
At Sinai Jewish Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve at school. In order to do this, many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey. For some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them to make the best possible progress in school.
Sinai is a fully inclusive school and aims for all pupils achieve their potential, personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs).
Children are identified as having SEND when they have a significant learning difficulty or disability which calls for provision to be implemented that is additional to, or different from, the provision that is typically in place for other children of the same age in a mainstream setting. The school then have specific needs based plans that help support their development and accelerate progress.
The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.
What is the Local Offer?
- Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer’.
- The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
The School SEND Information Report
This utilises the LA Local Offer to meet the needs of SEND pupils as determined by school policy, and the provision that the school is able to meet.
If your child has Special Educational Needs, what can Sinai Jewish Primary School offer you?
We embrace the fact that every child is different, and, therefore, the educational needs of every child are different; this is certainly the case for children with Special Educational Needs.
