Pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability

Our school strives to ensure that pupils who have disabilities or other Special Educational Needs are fully included in school life and are able to fully access the curriculum through the carefully planned provision.

The school’s provision for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is co-ordinated by Mr Ben Henderson, the Special Educational Needs Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCO).  Elena Diaz is the school’s named governor for Special Educational Needs and Disability.

The school follows the SEN Code of Practice in identifying and supporting children.

What is the Local Offer?

The Local Offer was first introduced in The Green Paper [March 2011] as a local offer of all services available to support disabled children and children with SEN and their families. This easy to understand information will set out what is normally available in schools to help children with lower level SEN as well as the options available to support families who need additional help to care for a child.

Northumberland Local Offer

What will it do?

The Stobhillgate framework will allow the Local Offer to provide parents/carers with information about how to access services in their area, and what they can expect from those services. With regard to Education, it will let parents/ carers and young people know how school and colleges will support them, and what they can expect across the local settings.

Able, Gifted or Talented Pupils

Provision is also made for more able pupils through the extended curriculum and through a variety of opportunities across and outside the school.
