Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) and Local Offer

At Holland House we are ambitious for our children with SEND.

At Holland House our SEND offer ensures inclusivity for all of our children. As a school we understand the needs of our children, what their barriers to learning are and work in co-production to remove those barriers. We do this through an ambitious, adapted curriculum that ensures equity. SEND children are fully exposed to whole school experience and given the same opportunities as all. As a school we have a highly effective SENDCo that identifies the need across the school and has used SEND professionals to train staff in the school to become champions of these areas. We currently have Champions for Autism, OT, SALT and SEMH. The SENDCo has carried out effective CPD for staff ensuring staff understand the children in their class.

 

The children at Holland House have respect for each other and understand that not all children learn the same and some children need extra support. We educate our children to ensure that they are inclusive and understand that we are all different but all have the right to learn. We develop a SEND community that brings together parents for support and guidance.
