Special Educational Needs and Disability

Special Educational Needs means that a child needs something special providing for them, which is additional to, or different from, the educational provision made generally for children their age, in order for them to reach their full potential or to be fully included in the school.

At Kingswood Parks Primary School, we value all children equally whatever the differences in their abilities or behaviours and believe that every child matters. We cherish this diversity and recognise the benefits to everyone in having an inclusive education system.

At Kingswood Parks Primary School we ensure all pupils, regardless of their specific needs are supported to make the best possible progress. We believe that pupils with SEND and their parent/carers should be at the heart of planning and decision making. We aspire to the HET vision of a person-centred approach.

We aim to provide opportunities for pupils with SEND and their parent/carers to play an active role in planning their provision in accordance with the SEND Code of Practice 2014.
