Our SENCO is Mrs Deborah Oke whose role is to lead achievement and support for children with additional needs or who are within vulnerable groups. We recognise that it is within the school's responsibility to ensure achievement through high quality provision appropriate for all learners.
If you would like to speak to Mrs Oke about any issue concerning your child, please contact her via the school office 0208 857 3742 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice for 0 – 25 years (2014) states that:
A child or young person has Special Educational Needs (SEND) if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:
a) have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age;
b) have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions
At Dorset Road Infant School we believe that:
Effective assessment and provision for children with SEN will be secured with partnership with parents/carers, children, the Local Education Authority and any relevant outside agencies.
