Special Educational Needs
SEND at Brooklands Primary and Nursery School
At Brooklands, our values are central to everything that we do. Together, the children and staff have identified our Brooklands Values which, as a school, we all agree to abide by.
As well as our school values we have great ambition for our school. We are committed to our school being at the heart of the school community. Local groups use our site and we regularly invite local businesses into school to promote aspirations and to give the children a wider sense of community.
We are proud of Brooklands and of our thriving school community. Our shared vision for our school compliments our values and ensures we are all focused on making Brooklands a place where everyone reaches their potential.
It is likely that the majority of children will experience some level of difficulty at some point during their time in education, however some children and young people may require additional support to remove barriers to their learning. This is based on an understanding that all children and young people are entitled to an education that is responsive to their needs, promotes high standards and opportunities to explore their hopes and aspirations, regardless of their starting point, background or area of need.
This should enable them to:
- achieve their best
- become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and
- make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training
The framework for supporting children and young people with special education needs is contained within the SEN Code of Practice. A copy of which can be found on the Department for Education’s website:
Derbyshire has developed a SEND Local Offer, which is a resource that is designed to support children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities and their families. It describes the services and provision that are available both to those families in Derbyshire that have an Education, Health and Care Plan and those who do not have a plan, but still experience some form of special educational need. The SEND Local Offer includes information about public services across education, health and social care, as well as those provided by the private, voluntary and community sectors.
Our school SENDCO is Miss House.
