Special Educational Needs and Disability

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 

We are an inclusive school that encourages every child (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational need) to reach their full potential; nurtured and supported in a Christian community, which lives by the values of Love, Compassion and Respect. All children are entitled to high quality first teaching and this is seen as the first step in responding to pupils who have or may have Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).

‘High quality teaching, differentiated for individual pupils, is the first step in responding to pupils who have or may have SEN’ (SEN CoP, 2015 6.37)

At The King's School, we believe that all children can develop good learning skills. In order to support children to become good learners our learning and teaching focuses on developing these skills through our twelve Learning Certainties: Enthusiastic, Responsive, Flexible, Resourceful, Inclusive, Resilient, Independent, Determined, Motivated, Confident, Imaginative and Focused.

See our SEND report/policy

What are the arrangements for handling concerns and complaints about SEND at The King’s CE Primary School?

We encourage parents to liaise with the school at the earliest opportunity about any issues or concerns they may have about enabling their child to be able to access the curriculum so we can work in partnership to gain the best outcomes. Please discuss any concerns in the first instance with your child’s class teacher. If you feel your concern has not been addressed appropriately, then please arrange to speak to SEND Co-ordinator. If they are not available then please arrange to speak to a member of the Senior Leadership Team and they will aim to resolve the concern as quickly as possible. If the need arises, our Complaints Policy can be accessed from the school website: https://www.kings.richmond.sch.uk/attachments/download.asp?file=1340&type=pdf
