Admission arrangements for pupils with SEND
At Westmeads we can make provision for every kind of frequently occurring special educational need without an Education, Health and Care Plan, for instance dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language needs, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, learning difficulties and social, mental health and emotional difficulties. The staff has a wealth of experience when dealing with many different types of special educational need and will always give its best endeavours to meet the needs of all pupils.
The school also currently endeavours to meet the needs of pupils with an Education, Health and Care plan with the following kinds of special educational need: cerebral palsy, visual or hearing impairment, severe and profound speech and language disorder and medical conditions. Decisions on the admission of pupils with an Education, Health and Care plan are made by the Local Authority.
The admission arrangements for pupils without an Education, Health and Care Plan do not discriminate against or disadvantage disabled children or those with special educational needs.
Please read the agreed policy for SEN. We have involved staff, parents and governors in a consultation process, including a meeting with all parties to discuss this policy.
Amendments and suggestions have been taken on board.
This policy reflects our current practice and complies with the new SEN Code of Practice 2014.
