Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (S.E.N.D.)

Our over-riding aim at Cavendish Close Infant and Nursery School is to provide a happy, stimulating, caring and secure environment in which the lives of the children are enriched that they are able to achieve their full potential.

Our S.E.N.D. Aims:

  • To ensure that all children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.
  • To provide a differentiated curriculum that meets the needs of all learners.
  • To ensure that all teachers are responsible for every child in their class.
  • To create an environment where children can contribute to their own learning, where they feel safe and listened to.
  • To ensure early identification of S.E.N.D. in partnership with the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO).
  • To ensure that children with S.E.N.D. take as full a part as possible in all school activities.
  • To ensure that parents of children with S.E.N.D. are involved in target setting and regular reviews of progress and achievement.
  • To work towards inclusion in partnership with other agencies.

Our S.E.N.D. Policy October 2018 and Special Educational Needs Information Report October 2018 clarify how we fulfil our S.E.N.D. aims.

We are a caring and nurturing school and we strive to do our very best for every child.  We are committed to working effectively with parents and external agencies.

All children access Quality First Teaching.  In addition to this, we run a number of well-established and successful intervention programmes.

Children with S.E.N.D. are set Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely (SMART) targets.  Well thought out provision is implemented and progress is reviewed regularly.
