Special Educational Needs

Personalised and inclusive learning community; unlocking the potential

"Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are well catered for by well trained and caring staff. Pupils with SEND flourish in class because staff make learning interesting. In addition, staff have the same high expectations of pupils with SEND as they have of other pupils. This helps to ensure that these pupils make strong progress in reading, writing and mathematics. They consolidate their knowledge and skills as they progress through the curriculum." OFSTED 2020

Welcome to our SEN information page which is part of the Cheshire West and Chester Local Offer for Learners with special needs. All Governing Bodies of maintained schools have a legal duty to publish information on their website about the implementation of the governing body’s policy for pupils with SEN. This information is updated annually.

All Cheshire West and Chester Local Authority (LA) maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.

All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs. By highlighting these areas we meet Article 18 for the Rights of the child which makes clear that we must support parents by creating support services for children and give parents the help they need to raise their children.

At Farndon, we value and welcome your comments on our offer, so please do contact us. The best people to contact are:
