Special Educational Needs (SEND)


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 individual 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 either work as part of small group led by a teacher. The SENCo meets with the class teacher regularly to allow for feedback and support.

We also have an on-site Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP) which has eight spaces. Rainbow class is complex needs unit, with needs ranging from severe learning difficulties to Autism Spectrum Disorder. The children in Rainbow class are also paired with a mainstream class to allow for integration and a chance to develop friendships. Rainbow class has a bespoke made sensory room attached to allow for children to calm and relax when they are feeling overstimulated. We use elements of the teach 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.
