 Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

The SEND Code of Practice became statutory in September 2014, it gives guidance on duties, policies and procedures relating to Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014 and associated regulations and applies to England. It relates to children and young people with special education needs and disabled children and young people. (SEND)

At Tilery Primary School, we endeavour to meet the needs all of pupils that attend our school. We strive to provide an inclusive environment that enables each individual to achieve to the best of their ability.

At our school we aim to provide an environment that caters for the needs of each individual pupil with SEND in one or more of the following areas:

C & L = Cognition and Learning – Support for learning difficulties may be required when children and young people learn at a slower pace than their peers, even with appropriate differentiation.

C & I = Communication and Interaction – Children and young people with Communication and Interaction difficulties or speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) have difficulty in communicating with others. This may be because they have difficulty saying what they want to, understanding what is being said to them or because they do not understand or use social rules of communication

SEMH = Social, Emotional and Mental Health – Children and young people may experience a wide range of social and emotional difficulties, which manifest themselves in many ways. These may include becoming withdrawn or isolated as well as displaying challenging, disruptive or disturbing behaviour. These behaviours may reflect underlying mental health difficulties such as anxiety or depression, self-harming, substance misuse, eating disorders or physical symptoms that are medically unexplained. Other children and young people may have disorders such as attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder or attachment disorder.

SP = Sensory and/or Physical  – Some children and young people require special educational provision because they have a disability, which prevents or hinders them from making use of the educational facilities generally provided.

How and when are pupils added to the SEND register?

Parents / carers must consent to their child being added to the SEN register. Pupils work towards achieving the individualised targets set by their class teacher on their SEN Support Plan. These plans are shared with parents at the beginning of each term. They are then reviewed termly with parents and with the pupils themselves.

Do we work with outside agencies to further support our children?

Our school works collaboratively with the local authority, health professionals and other agencies which include:

SALT (speech and language therapy)

EP (Educational Psychologist)


OT (Occupational Therapy)

Bungalow partnership

Fire service

ABC – Play therapy

Specialist teachers from the local authority
