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 by: 

·         Enabling every student to experience success

·         Promoting individual confidence and a positive attitude of resilience

·         Ensuring that all students, whatever their needs, receive appropriate educational provision through a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant and suitably differentiated, and that demonstrates coherence and progression in learning

·         Giving all students equal opportunities to take part in all aspects of the school’s provision, as far as is appropriate, practicable, and compatible with giving regard to health and safety and the efficient education of other students

·         Identifying, assessing, recording and regularly reviewing students’ progress and needs

·         Involving students and parent(s)/carer(s) in planning and supporting at all stages of the student’s development

·         Working collaboratively with students, parent(s)/carer(s), outside agencies and support services including health and social services

·         Ensuring that the responsibility held by all staff members and governor for SEND is implemented and maintained 

·         Ensuring high quality teaching is implemented and staff receive suitable training in order for them to meet student’s needs

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”.
