Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Colehill First School, we are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs or abilities.

Code of Practice for Pupils with SEN and Disabilities

In September 2014, a new Code of Practice was launched for schools in England with regard to pupils with Special Educational Needs and / or Disabilities (SEND).

All schools are required to publish a ‘Local Offer’ setting out their SEND provision in clear, jargon-free terms. Our local offer comprises two key documents

A)Our school's annual SEN Information Report

B) Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy

Links to both documents are available below.

Each school's Local Offer forms part of Dorset's Local Offer.
