C.E. Primary School


How we support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The school “maintains a close eye on the vulnerable pupils who are most in need of support. It is clear that the well established relationships that all staff have with parents provides strong support for families, as well as for children.”

Local Offer from Hertfordshire:

As part of the SEN reforms, the Hertfordshire County Council has to provide access to information of what is on offer across the county.

The purpose of the local offer is to:

Provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the support and opportunities that are available for all children and young people with SEND aged 0-25 and their families (not just those who have an education, health and care plan).

Information on the Hertfordshire Local Offer can be found here

Alongside the County Local Offer, schools are required to have a School Offer. The aim of this will be to give clear information on how the SEN Code of Practice is implemented in the school.
