Welcome to SEND at Sandringham School. Sandringham aims to embrace the needs of all students and has a whole-school approach to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We provide effective opportunities for all students by responding to students’ diverse and often complex, learning needs, setting suitable learning challenges and overcoming barriers to learning.
Sandringham in an inclusive school that believes strongly that all students, regardless of ability, background or ethnicity, have the right to participate in and enjoy all aspects of school life, and have the opportunity to meet their full potential. Sandringham School recognises the definition of SEND as described in the SEND Code of Practice 0- 25, 2014. More details of which can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25
Admissions for all students to Sandringham are handled by the Local Education Authority, including for students with Education, Health and Care plans, disabilities and Looked after Children. A copy of our Admissions Policy can be found on our school website. Another useful link is to the Local Authority’s Local Offer that outlines support and services for SEND available within Hertfordshire: www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/localoffer
Our SEND provision is co-ordinated by the Learning Support Faculty, under the SENCO, Chris Bloomfield. Additional SEND information is available on our SEND Report and School Accessibility Plan, both of which are reviewed and updated annually. These documents can be downloaded below.
If you require additional information, we would encourage you to visit the school on our annual open evening or morning tours. Our SENCO Chris Bloomfield, can be contacted here: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to working with you in the future.
