Special Educational Needs & Disability
At Cedars Park, we believe that the journey through education should be fulfilling, enjoyable and valuable. We believe that all learners should have their needs met within a safe, accessible, and caring environment. We strive to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is inclusive and engaging so that regardless of race, gender, religion, background, abilities and needs, individuals thrive and achieve their potential.
We are proud of our inclusive and nurturing approach. We celebrate strengths and things that make us unique, whiles identifying and targeting areas to improve. For those whose needs require additional targeted provision, support and/or resources, they will be added to our SEN register and support plans of assess, plan, do and review cycle(s) will be implemented. At Cedars Park, we call these Personalised Learning Plans.
Every teacher at Cedars Park is a teacher of special educational needs. Therefore, we endeavour to meet the needs of each individual through reasonable adjustments and targeted approaches, as per the SEND Code of Practice. All of this is done in collaboration with the child, parents, staff and, where appropriate, external agencies and services.
- Our Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo) is Mrs Scarlett.
- Our Local Improvement Board member with responsibility for SEN is Mrs Toni Calvert.
If you have any concerns about your child’s learning, please speak to your child’s class teacher or make an appointment with the SENDCo via the school office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
