Special Educational Needs & Disability

Nailsea School has an inclusive ethos and we strive to ensure all students are fully included in all learning and extra-curricular activities.

Learning Support assistants support individual students with additional educational needs in class with their peers across the curriculum. They also provide other support as and when appropriate that could include one-to-one support for literacy and numeracy intervention and speech and language work. We believe strongly in a collaborative approach and we work very closely with families, communicating regularly.

The Government is transforming the system for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), so that services consistently support the best outcomes for them.

Under the new law, Statements of Special Educational Needs and Learning Difficulty Assessments will be phased out, to be replaced by 0-25 Education, Health and Care Plans (EHC Plans).

Schools have a duty to publish SEND information so that parents can see what support a school provides for its pupils in the form of a school local offer.
