Special Educational Needs

Hurst Knoll Primary School is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all our pupils. We believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life.

Hurst Knoll is committed to inclusion. Part of the school’s strategic planning for improvement is to develop cultures, policies and practices that include all learners. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties. Our inclusion lead is Mrs L Smith and Rev P Lodge is our SEN Governor.

SEN report section 317(5)(a) of EA 1996

The Governors receive information each year from the SENCo about the number of children on the Special Needs Audit and their needs, information about 'provision mapping' and the training of members of staff, together with updates to the Special Educational Needs Policy. The Senior Leadership Team verify school data related to all vulnerable groups to see that needs are appropriately met.
