Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
All children are valued equally at Kempshott Infant School regardless of their abilities and behaviour. Carefully differentiated activities enable all children to follow a broad, balanced and relevant education and allow their needs to be met. We have high expectations of all children and seek to raise their achievement so that they reach their full potential.
The school recognises its responsibility to admit children with special educational needs except where the local authority decides that the school is not an appropriate placement. The school practises effective inclusion and believes that children with disabilities should be treated equally and be integrated with peers.
The school promotes a whole school approach to meeting the needs of children with special needs, believing that early identification and intervention is paramount. Children are assessed at various times during their school life and those identified with having special educational needs are given extra support. Where appropriate we work closely with outside agencies and other professionals to meet the individual needs of the child. Children with special educational needs are not only children with learning difficulties, but include children with physical difficulties, emotional and behavioural difficulties, speech and language difficulties and medical conditions.
