Special Educational Needs

The Grove's SEND vision statement

At The Grove we strive to provide an inclusive environment where all children are happy, healthy and safe and can achieve their full social and intellectual potential through access to a broad and balanced curriculum. We believe that every teacher is a teacher of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), that the principle of inclusion extends to society as a whole and is the responsibility of all pupils, parents, staff, governors and the wider community.

Through our best endeavours we seek to deliver the most appropriate provision for any pupil who requires support which is ‘additional to and different from that made generally for others of the same age,’ as outlined in the SEND Code of Practice 2015.

I hope you will find the following documents useful in explaining the Cambridgeshire Local Offer and how our school supports children with identified special educational needs.If these documents haven't answered all of your questions please feel free to contact the school office on 01223 577017 to make an appointment.
