Special Education Needs (SEND)

SEND Information

Here at De Bohun we value every child and welcome children with a Special Educational Need or Disability. Our inclusive approach to learning ensures all children are provided with opportunities to be challenged at a level that is appropriate for them. We cater for specific needs with children having individual education plans (IEP) which are reviewed termly with parents, class teacher and SENCo. Children with a Special Educational Need or Disability work as part of small group led by a teacher. The SENCo meets with class teachers regularly to allow for support, updates on the children’s progress and next steps.

We also have an on-site Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP). Our Rainbow & Sunshine rooms cater for children with complex needs, ranging from severe learning difficulties to Autism Spectrum Disorder. The children in our ARP are also paired with a mainstream class to allow for integration and a chance to develop friendships. Rainbow room has a bespoke made sensory room area to allow for children to calm and relax when they are feeling overstimulated and Sunshine room has a bespoke outside area with climbing equipment. We use elements of the TEACCH priorities, PECs, visuals and zones of regulation as part of our toolkit to provide the very best learning environment.

The school has been awarded Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence criteria and as a result the school has achieved the Inclusion Quality Mark Award. We are also working towards an Autism Accreditation mark through the National Autistic Society.
