Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Slade is proud of its inclusive ethos and is fully committed to ensuring all pupils, regardless of their background, additional educational needs, race or gender are able to fulfil their potential.

In September 2014, a new Special Educational Needs (SEN) Code of Practice came into effect. Under the new Code of Practice, a child is deemed to have Special Educational Needs, or SEN, if he or she has, 'significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age' or his or her disability, 'prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in a mainstream school'.  

In order to ensure all pupils with SEND are included in all aspects of school life, we apply the Mainstream Core Standards (MCS) across the school.  Please follow the links below to find out more.
