SEN Provision

Special Educational Needs at Blackwater

At Blackwater School we ensure that all children are supported with both pastoral and academic needs. We provide pupils with Individual Learning Plans to support them in their learning and help them to become more independent learners. We value input from parents and the pupils themselves.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me (Evey Evison, SENCo) at school to discuss any questions you may have about your child’s learning.

What is the admission criteria for children with SEN?

Places will first be offered to children with a Statements of Special Educational Needs or Education Health and Care Plan which names the school. These children will be included in the overall admission number of the school.

The Governor responsible for SEN provision is Mrs Hayley Coombes.  We are always happy to listen and talk to parents about our graduated response to SEN provision and how best we can support individual children in achieving to the best of their ability. We work closely with a wide range of external agencies to enhance our provision and ensure the most appropriate strategies are in place to enable learning.
