Special Educational Needs and Disability

The SENDCO provides leadership and professional guidance to colleagues and works closely with staff, parents and carers, and other agencies. The SENDCO promotes person-centred, inclusive, practice in which the interests and needs of pupils with SEN and/or disabilities are at the heart of everything that they do.

The SENDCO is aware of the provision in the Derbyshire Local Offer (see link below)and works with professionals to provide support to the family to ensure that children with SEN receive appropriate support and high quality teaching, make at least good progress and achieve good outcomes.

At Langley Mill CE Infant School and Nursery the school SENDCO is Mrs C. Goulding

Special Educational Needs and Disability Governor

All governing bodies have important statutory duties towards pupils with special educational needs (SEND). Governing bodies should, with the Headteacher/SENDCO, decide the school’s general policy and approach to meeting pupils’ special educational needs for those with and without EHC plans.

Under the provisions of the Education Act, governors and local authorities have a duty to do their best to ensure that the necessary provision is made for pupils with SEND and must have regard to the SEND Code of Practice.

Most governing bodies appoint a link governor to have specific oversight of the school’s arrangements and provision for meeting SEND. The governor is the link between the governing body and the school in relation to pupils with SEND.

At Langley Mill CE Infant School & Nursery the link governor for SEND is Reverend. K. Padley
