SEND Information Report


The aims of our policy and practice in relation to special educational need and disability St Oswald’s are:
• To make reasonable adjustments for those with a disability by taking action to increase access to the curriculum, the environment and to printed information for all.
• To ensure that children and young people with SEN engage in the activities of the school alongside pupils who do not have SEN.
• To reduce barriers to progress by embedding the principles in the National Curriculum Inclusion statement
• To use our best endeavours to secure special educational provision for pupils for whom this is required, that is “additional to and different from” that provided within the differentiated curriculum, to better respond to the four broad areas of need:

  1. Communication and interaction,
  2. Cognition and learning,
  3. Social, mental and emotional health,
  4. Sensory/physical.
    • To request, monitor and respond to parent/carers’ and pupils’ views in order to evidence high levels of confidence and partnership.
    • To ensure a high level of staff expertise to meet pupil need, through well-targeted continuing professional development.
    • To support pupils with medical conditions to achieve full inclusion in all school activities by ensuring consultation with health and social care professionals in order to meet the medical needs of pupils.
    • To work in cooperative and productive partnership with the Local Authority and other outside agencies, to ensure there is a multi-professional approach to meeting the needs of all vulnerable learners.
