Special Educational Needs Provision Statement

Governors have a duty under s317 of the Education Act 1996 to do their best to ensure that the necessary provision is made for pupils with SEN. The school Standards and Framework Act 1998 requires governors to conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards. These high standards relate to all the pupils in the school including those with SEN.

In relation to SEN, the governing body should make sure that:

  • they are fully involved in developing and monitoring the schools SEN policy
  • all governors, especially SEN governors, are up to date and knowledgeable about the schools SEN provision, including how funding, equipment and personnel resources are deployed
  • SEN provision is an integral part of the school development plan
  • The quality of SEN provision is continually monitored
