Special Education Needs
At Slough and Eton Church of England Business and Enterprise College, the individual is nurtured within a strong community environment and equal importance is placed on academic achievement and personal qualities. Our aim is to foster a spirit of independence within our students, to provide them with strategies for dealing with their needs in a supportive environment and to give them meaningful access to the National Curriculum
Our curriculum is designed to ensure all students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities experience success through a broad, balanced, varied and interesting learning experience. The support, interventions and pathways will enable students with SEND to acquire the skills, characteristics, attitudes, knowledge and understanding necessary for enhancing life skills, social skills, cultural awareness, positive mental health and well-being ensuring positive student outcomes.
All students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities experience success enabling them to move onto the next stage in their educational journey. They are developed as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who have the skills and will know how to make a positive contribution to their community and the wider society.
In addition to specific interventions we provide a varied programme of enrichment activities. We believe that education and learning is not limited to the classroom and we provide many opportunities for students extend their learning
Definition of SEN: Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of practice, Department for Health and Education, January 2015
“A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her which is different from, or additional to, that normally available to students of the same age.”
From September 2014, all schools are required to publish details of their SEN Information Report, detailing support for students with special educational needs and/or a disability. This is can be found at the bottom of the page.
Local Offer is the term that the Department for Education (DfE) have chosen to describe the collection of information about the support that local authorities must make available to help children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities and their families. The purpose of the local offer is to enable parents, carers, children and young people with SEND to see clearly, from a single and regularly updated source, the services available to local families and how to access them. Put simply, information on "Local" services and support on "Offer" is gathered together and made easy to find in a "Local Offer”.
