Tottington High SchoolSpecial Educational Needs and Disability Policy
SENCO: Mrs J Foster
Introduction to this Policy
The Academy Council and teaching staff will do their best to ensure that the necessary provision is made for any pupil who has special educational needs and ensure that, where the headteacher or the appropriate Academy councillor has been informed by the Children’s Service Authority (CSA) that a pupil has special educational needs, those needs will be made known to all who are likely to teach them.
All the teachers in the school are teachers of children with Special Educational Needs. As such Tottington High School adopts a ‘whole school approach’ to special educational needs which involves all the staff adhering to a model of good practice. The staff of the school are committed to identifying and providing for the needs of all children in a wholly inclusive environment. Inclusion is regarded as crucial to the policy, in line with that of the Local Authority.
The school operates an equal opportunities policy for children with special educational needs who are afforded the same rights as other children. This includes both those children with statements of special educational needs and those others with less significant problems.
