Admission: Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
In September 2014 a new Code of Practice providing clear and detailed guidance with regard to SEND was introduced into all schools.
In order that Great Moor Infant School is compliant with this documentation we have produced a document called the ‘School Offer’. This document outlines the SEND provision and support within school as well the key role played by parents. It is best viewed with the Local Authority Offer. Both of these can be accessed via Great Moor Infant School website www.greatmoor-inf.stockport.sch.uk ~ Parent Information ~ Admissions: Local Offer & School Offer.
At Great Moor Infant School parents, all staff and Governors have very high aspirations for SEND pupils. It is our aim to enable pupils to achieve in school and put in place building blocks for successful learning beyond early years and infant school. Individual pupils play an important role in considering their learning targets and support.
The 2014 Code of Practice sets out an individualised and graduated response to support children with Special Educational needs and disabilities.
The areas of SEND are:
- Communication and interaction
- Cognition and Learning
- Emotional and Social development including mental health
- Sensory and/or physical
In order that our children feel happy, safe and secure we have developed Induction Programmes, both in Nursery and Reception. These include home visits, story sessions, and phased entry into school or Nursery. These Induction Programmes have proved to be exceptionally successful. Pupils settle very well into both of our Early Years settings. Further details are available in the ‘Welcome’ pack.
