Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
We work hard to be an inclusive school, giving consideration to the need of each pupils' individual starting point,
so they can 'be the best they can be'.
Our SEND and other policies can be found under 'Key Information' and 'Policies'.
Children have special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.
A significant number of children may need special educational provision at some time during their school lives. For some children, the provision may last for only a short period of time. However, for other children the provision may last longer.
Special educational provision covers a wide range of need including sensory impairment, physical disability, communication, learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties, as well as children with exceptional ability.
The support that we provide at Bilton Infant School is summarised in our SEND Information Report.
