Abbot Beyne School is an inclusive school, committed to identifying and addressing the needs of students with Special Educational Needs and / or Disabilities (SEND).

Throughout their learning journey, all students have the right to a balanced and broad curriculum. In adhering to the requirements of the SEND Code of Practice 2015, we will ensure that every child with Special Educational Need(s) and / or Disability receives the most appropriate and bespoke package of support to meet their needs.

We aim to identify any SEND as early as possible to enable us to secure the best long term outcomes for the student and their family, making reasonable adjustments, in line with the Equality Act 2010. Regular assessment allows us to identify pupils making less than expected progress given their age and individual circumstances. This can be characterised by progress which is significantly slower than that of their peers starting from the same baseline.

Where progress continues to be less than expected through Quality First Teaching, the SENCo will assess whether the student has SEND through gathering evidence from discussions with the student, their parents / carers, teaching staff and the pastoral support team. For higher levels of need we may seek advice from outside agencies. 

At Abbot Beyne School we have a number of policies in place to support our provision for all students. These are available
