From September 2014 Local Authorities (LA) and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is called the 'Local Offer'.
The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice for families and will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
Welcome to our SEND information page. Hopefully you will find everything that you need. We are continually adding information about SEND on our website. If you would like to discuss SEND in more detail please contact Alex Hammersley - SENDCo or Leanne Barker-Executive Head Teacher, to arrange an appointment on 01661 842271. Or call Samantha Drysdale on 01207 560325
At Broomley First School and Whittostall First School we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.
Our schools recognise there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEND. If you have any concerns about how your child is progressing, or is dealing with any other aspect of school life, please contact the SENDCo.
In the Federation we have a Designated Teacher for Looked after Children who works closely with the SENDCo to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEND.
We ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.
First AidThe majority of staff in both our schools have undertaken basic first aid training.
