An Introduction to SEND

SEND

The Government has asked all Local Authorities in the UK to publish, in one place, information about the services and provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND).

This is known as the Local Offer.  Further information about the Local Offer can be found on the www.leedslocaloffer.org.uk  website.

Since government reforms in 2014, there are now 4 areas of need for SEND children. There are:

  1. Cognition and Learning
  2. Communication and Interaction
  3. Social, Emotional and Mental Health
  4. Sensory and/or physical
SEND at Whinmoor St Paul’s C of E Primary School

SEND Information Report

Schools also have to publish a SEND Information Report on their website.  This will provide details about how we implement our policy for children and young people with SEND.

If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.

Here is a copy of our SEND Policy.
