Fordingbridge Federation supports inclusive education and will aim to educate children with SEND alongside their peers in mainstream education. Consideration will be given to the wishes of the parents/carers and the ability to meet those needs successfully. Age, gender, race, creed or individual needs do not constrain any entitlement. All children are entitled to be valued equally and must be educated to their full potential. The school’s Admission Policy reflects our statutory responsibilities to children with SEND as do specific Inclusion and SEND Policies. The school has an Accessibility Plan to meet the requirements of the Equality Act.
Provision for Children with SEND
Provisions for children with SEND are effective for all year groups and Key Stages. Thorough and careful planning ensures a smooth transition from infant to junior school and then junior to secondary school. Children with Additional Needs are identified and records detailing specific additional needs or disabilities are attached to their transfer documents. During their time at Fordingbridge Federation children’s needs continue to be identified using a range of assessments by individual subject teachers. When required specialist diagnostic tests are conducted by specialist teachers. When appropriate, external support services and agencies are invited in to give help and support to both staff and pupils.
