SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities)

At Lyndhurst Primary School we believe it is important to consider the needs of all children, and that all children are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum.

Every effort is made to identify and assess children with additional educational needs as early as possible and to provide differentiated tasks according to their needs.

It is our aim to keep parents and carers fully informed at every stage of their child’s development, and where possible children will be involved in the monitoring of their own progress to promote independence.

We value the knowledge, views and experience of pupils, parents and carers, and feel that the most effective assessment and provision can be achieved when there is a partnership between parents, children, outside agencies and our school

Lyndhurst Primary School takes into account the guidance of the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2014) in conjunction with the Children and Families Act (2014) in addition to the document: Supporting children at school with medical conditions (2014).  An inclusive education is implemented, with a graduated response, matching the level of support to the requirements of the child, in accordance with guidelines.

Every teacher at Lyndhurst Primary School is a teacher of every child including those with special educational needs.
