AEN at Capel-Le-Ferne Primary School

At Capel-Le-Ferne Primary school we believe that all children have the right to a good education which meets their individual need. Our vision of respectconfidenceindependence and creativity apply to all the pupils of our school, regardless of background, ability, gender or additional need.

As a team, we strive towards creating opportunities for all of our pupils to have success. We believe in early support and assessment to ensure that children are given every opportunity to make progress in their learning, both in their academic development and within their own social and emotional wellbeing.

The SENCo is therefore responsible for monitoring and developing the learning of:

  • Children with SEND

  • Children within local authority care (LAC)

  • Adopted children

  • Children who receive pupil premium funding

For further information, please read our SEND information report.

  • The Mainstream Core Standards
    The Mainstream Core Standards document explains what schools (this includes academies and free schools) must do to support children and young people with SEND so that they are included in all aspects of school life (or are as included as they wish to be), make progress and are happy in school.

The SEND Code of Practice

The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Code of Practice provides schools and local authorities with statutory guidance on duties, policies and procedures relating to The Children and Families Act 2014. The code, which came into force on 1 September 2014, explains the duties of schools and colleges to provide reasonable adjustments, auxiliary aids, services and support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities; it provides the basis for our work with all children with SEND at River Primary School. 

Kent SEND Information Hub - The Local Offer

The Children and Families Act 2014 requires the Local Authority and schools to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) aged 0-25.

The Local Authority refer to this as the ‘Local Offer’ and full details can be found in the Kent SEND Information Hub. The Local Offer gives children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities and their families information about what support services are available in their area. Click on the link below to find out more.
