Welcome to the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities page
In this section you will find out how we identify children with SEND and the provision we put into place to help meet their individual needs.
Eastwood is a fully inclusive, mainstream primary school which aims to ensure that all pupils achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs).
Inclusion is a feeling. It is determined by perception and achieved by understanding. We are committed to and value each and every individual within the NSAT Community and beyond.
Children are identified as having Special Educational Needs and Disabilities when their progress has slowed or stopped and the interventions, resources and support put in place do not enable improvement. Once this occurs, we have specific needs based plans which help support a child's development and accelerate progress.
The Inclusion Leader and SENDCo in school is Miss Higgins. If you have any questions about SEND, please do not hesitate to come into school and speak to Miss Higgins.
No pupil will be refused admission to school on the basis of his or her special educational need or disability, providing that reasonable steps can be taken by the school to meet the needs of each child’s age, aptitude and ability. As per the SEN Code of Practice 2014, admission of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities will be considered in line with the efficient education of other children in the cohort; incompatibilities despite reasonable steps will be considered when admitting a child with special educational needs and disabilities. In line with the SEN and Disability Act, we will not discriminate against disabled children and we will take all reasonable steps to provide effective educational provision.
