SEN Information Report 2017- 2018

At The Arches Primary School, we embrace the fact that every child is different, and therefore the educational needs of every child is different; this is certainly the case for children with Special Educational Needs.

From September 2014 all schools are now required to publish a Special Educational Needs (SEN) Information Report on their school website. This sets out detailed information about implementation of the government's policy for pupils with SEN and disabilities (SEND).

It includes arrangements for identifying, assessing and making provision for pupils/students with SEN and disabilities.  The four broad ‘areas of need’ with regard to SEN are;

  • Communication and Interaction,
  • Cognition and Learning,
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and
  • Sensory and Physical Needs

The Cheshire West and Chester (CWAC) Local Offer

The Children and Families Bill became enacted in 2014. From this date, Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer’.

The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area
