Special Educational Needs

Gloucestershire's Local OfferOur vision focuses on a 'love of one another' and our core value is love. Christians believe that we are ‘made in the image of God’; everyone is different, everyone is valued and everyone is loved.

All learners, including those identified as having Special Educational Needs and disabilities (SEND), are therefore valued equally with others, and their progress is recognised and celebrated. All difficulties; social, emotional, behavioural, physical, medical, and academic, are dealt with sympathetically and with love and understanding.

We aim to provide an atmosphere in which all children can realise their full potential, and we have high expectations of children with SEN. All children need to experience praise, recognition, affection, and success, and all children are entitled to experience the same curriculum and to have equal access to the experiences and activities provided by the school.

Please find below links to our School Inclusion and SEN Policy, Inclusion and SEN Information Report as well as other useful information.
