SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITY (SEND) POLICY
Padiham Green Church of England Primary School is an inclusive school where every child is valued. We take safeguarding very seriously and all of our policies are developed with a high priority on children’s safety and in the light of our safeguarding policy.
This SEND policy is written to comply with the Children and Families Act 2014 and its SEN Code of Practice 0 – 25, together with the Equality Act 2010. This policy was created by the school’s SENCO Carole Atkinson who is a member of the school leadership team, with the Chair of Governors Mrs. Debbie Barsby in liaison with the SLT and all staff.
Definitions of special educational needs (SEN) taken from section 20 of the Children and Families Act 2014.
