At Sytchampton, we work incredibly hard to ensure that we provide a happy and nurturing environment, where all pupils will grow and flourish, regardless of their barriers. We believe that working with parents and developing strong relationships are the key to unlocking every child's potential.
If you have any concerns about your child's needs, then please do not hesitate to contact our Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Mrs Lawson.
What are Special Needs or Disabilities?
Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND
) can affect a child or young person’s ability to learn. They can affect their:
- behaviour or ability to socialise, for example they struggle to make friends
- reading and writing, for example because they have dyslexia
- ability to understand things
- concentration levels, for example because they have ADHD
- physical ability
Support Your Child Can Receive
Your child may be eligible for:
- SEN Support - support given in school, like speech therapy
- An Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) - a plan of care for children and young people aged up to 25 who have more complex needs
If you or your child got support before September 2014, this will continue until your local council changes it to an EHCP plan.
For more detailed information, please do take a look through our Offer and Policies below or contact the school via the office on email@example.com
