SEN School Information
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 defined as:
Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.
Our school SENCo (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) is Mrs Bethany Holmes. However, she is currently on maternity leave. Miss Walker is now our interim SENCO. She has dedicated time each week to support children and families. You can contact our SENCO (interim and otherwise) by emailing email@example.com. If you would like to see Miss Walker, an appointment can be made with her by emailing her or by contacting our school office on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01332 766815.
From the 1st September 2014, under Section 65 (3) (a) of the Special Educational Needs (Information) Regulations, all schools are required to publish an SEN Information Report on their school websites.

Pyramids of support for SEN/SAFs
Here at St. George's, we have a procedure we follow with regards to our children with additional needs.
If your child is experiencing any difficulties within school, please click the links to see our pyramid procedure of support for these children.
We will refer to these pyramids should we need to discuss your child with you and this set out how we can help them step by step.
At St George's, we use a platform called Edukey to log all of our SEN plans, as well as extra interventions and provisions we put in place for our pupils. From this year, parents will now be able to access their child's SEN/additional needs plan online at home.
Please see the below letter for more information.
