SEND Information

St Swithun’s has an experienced member of staff acting as a designated coordinator for pupils with SEND.  Our SENDCO is Miss Eaton who can be contacted through the school office.

Pupils have SEND if they:

  • have a learning difficulty which calls for specialised education provision to be made for them which is in addition to or different from the standard curriculum plan, within the mainstream class
  • have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age

At St Swithun’s we aim to:

  • successfully and happily integrate pupils with special educational needs into the academic and social life of the school
  • work positively with parents
  • enable ALL pupils to work to their full potential

The school continues to develop its infrastructure for gifted and talented pupils and action has already been taken to offer enhanced opportunities within school. We are aware that G&T pupils need to develop greater expertise through access to the curriculum and realise that high expectations lead to the highest standards.

We will work together with the LA and all relevant specialists in order to provide every assistance in meeting the best educational and social needs of a child with a physical disability.

The governing body considers access requirements when undertaking planned repairs and maintenance such that accessibility is increased both for children, parents/carers and visitors. The school’s Accessibility Plan is available in school.
