SEN Local Offer
The Department for Education (DfE) published a new special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) Code of Practice on 30 July 2014. It came into force from 1 September 2014, replacing the previous 2001 Code.
The new Code reflects the changes introduced by the Children and Families Act 2014.
All schools must have regard to what the Code of Practice says whenever decisions are taken relating to children with SEND.
All Tower Hamlets maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a Special Educational Need/s and or disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.
At Woolmore we believe that ALL children can achieve success and we take our responsibility towards the education of children with special educational needs very seriously.
