Special Educational Needs


Intent: To strive to enable pupils with SEND to achieve at school, and make a successful transition to adulthood, and live an independent life.

We aim to provide a caring and supportive environment in which all pupils are valued equally and are given the opportunity to develop to their full potential. We operate a policy of total INCLUSION at Seton School, where all children have opportunities to learn and take part in all our activities. Seton School promotes a positive attitude to lifelong learning. We value progress in all areas of learning and support our children to achieve their personal best.


SEND Information Report

The SEND Information Report provides information for children, young people and their parents/carers in a single place, helping them to understand what services they and their families can expect from a range of local agencies. This was introduced as part of the Children and Families Bill which became law in 2014.

The aim of the SEND Information Report is to improve choice and transparency for families about the services they use. By setting this information out in one place, this will also help the joint commissioning of services for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

The Local Authority will work together with children, young people, parents, carers and other local services to develop their offer and keep it under review.

The SEN(D) Policy 24/25 can be found here.

The member of staff who co-ordinates SEN(D) provision - the SENDCo -  is Miss V Laven.  

You will be invited into school for regular reviews of your child’s progress and attainment, however Miss Laven is always available to talk to either by telephone or by arranging a meeting that's convenient for you.
