Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

Everyone at OLASJ is committed to, and passionate about providing the conditions and opportunities to enable any child, including those with additional needs, to be included fully in all aspects of school life and to achieve their full potential.

What does ‘Special Educational Needs’ (SEN) mean?

The legal definition of SEN refers to children, who have learning difficulties or a disability, which results in them having a significantly greater difficulty in learning than most children of the same age. Many children may have SEN of some kind throughout their school life and support may be needed for a short time or it may be needed throughout their time in school.

What Next?

If the class teacher has concerns about your child’s progress and feels they may benefit from additional support to help them achieve, a meeting will be arranged with you to discuss this. You are the expert on your child and we really value your insights. It is by working together that gives each child the greatest chance of success.

If you feel that your child is struggling in school, or you are worried that they may have an additional need, please talk to us and we will do all we can to help. 

The member of staff with responsibility for SEND is Gemma Pegg
