SEND Information Report and Policy

Welcome to our SEND Information Report and Policy which is our contribution to the Norfolk Local Offer for learners with Special Educational Needs and/ or a disability (SEND).

www.norfolk.gov.uk/send

We have a legal duty to publish information about how our school’s policy for children with SEND is implemented here. This information will be updated annually and in line with the SEN Code of Practice 2015 www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25

At Colman Junior School we are committed to working together with all members of the school community and have high aspirations for all learners, including those with SEND.

‘A parents’ guide to SEND’ and ‘A children’s guide to SEND’ are also available to read on the SEND page of the federation website or available from the school office. These have been updated in summer 2019 with the help of parents and children.

This information report/ policy has been produced and reviewed with parents and carers, governors and members of staff. Last updated October 2019.
