SEN

The Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator (SENCo) is the Assistant Headteacher Mrs Karen Byer.  If you have any queries related to SEN you can contact her through the School Office 01628 483455 or via e-mail kbyer@foxespiece.bucks.sch.uk

 

The definition of special education needs (SEN) is taken from section 20 of the Children and Families Act 2014.

 

A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.  A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they;

 

  1. Have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or
  2. Have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 intuitions.

 

A child under compulsory school age has special educational needs if they fall within the definition at (1) or (2) above or would do so if special educational provision was not made for them.

 

Children must not be regarded as having a learning difficulty solely because the language or form of language of their home is different from the language in which they will be taught.

 

The contact for compliments, concerns or complaints from parents of children with SEND is; Mrs Jane Byron, Headteacher via Office Manager Maggi Howlett 01628 483455, office@foxespiece.bucks.sch.uk.  Please also see the Complaints Policy below.
