Safeguarding & SEN


All adults working in, or on behalf of the school have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This includes:

  • Responsibility to provide a safe environment in which children can learn.
  • To identify children who may be in need of extra help or who are suffering, or are likely to suffer significant harm. All staff then have a responsibility to take appropriate action, working with services as needed.



Which students are considered SEN?


Students who are considered to learn at a slower rate compared to pupils of the same age. If your student is SEN, they may need more support at school with a range of tasks, such as

  • schoolwork
  • reading, writing, numeracy or taking in information
  • befriending peers or conversing with adults
  • getting organised
  • a kind of sensory or physical need which may affect them in school e.g. not liking certain sounds
  • expressing themselves or understanding what others are saying to them
  • behaving appropriately in school


A Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO for short) is a teacher who is responsible for special educational needs at school. They ensure all students with learning disabilities are well equipped to obtain the right help and support they need at school.
