Sellindge is a small school and we know all our pupils well. We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs or abilities.
The specific objectives of our AEN (additional educational needs) policy are:
The named SEN coordinator for the school is Miss Diane Clark. Diane is available on in the afternoons each day. She can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A member of the Governing body, Mrs Alison Homewood and Mrs Maureen Stanley, takes a special interest in AEN, although the Governing Body as a whole is responsible for making provision for pupils with special educational needs. The school has a minimum of one teaching assistant in each class who implements support and intervention programmes under the guidance of the SEN co-ordinator and the class teacher.
The Governing Body has agreed with the LA admissions criteria which do not discriminate against pupils with additional education needs or disabilities, and its admissions policy has due regard for the guidance in the Codes of Practice which accompany the SEN and Disability Act 2001. Parents or carers seeking the admission of a pupil with mobility difficulties are advised to approach the school well in advance so that consultations can take place.
