St Augustine of Canterbury aims to meet the needs of all students and has a whole school approach to special educational needs and disabilities (SEN/D). We provide effective opportunities for all students by responding to the different ways in which students learn. We believe in setting suitable learning challenges and overcoming barriers to learning.
Our SEN/D provision is co-ordinated by the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo) and Learning Support team and follows Department for Education (DfE) definitions and guidance. It reflects
our statutory duties introduced by the Special Educational Needs and Disability code of practice 2014 and Disability Discrimination Act 2005. Sensitive attitude is shown towards all students at all times. We seek
support from the local authority for EAL.
As a department and a whole school, we have a desire that every child reaches and exceeds their potential, socially, emotionally and academically and use a range of strategies to achieve this.
