Special Educational Needs and Disabilities [SEND]
At Sedgeberrow, we pride ourselves in our provision for all children. We believe that all children and young people are entitled to an education that is appropriate to their needs, promotes high standards and the fulfilment of potential. We also recognise how important every aspect of a child's wellbeing is to their capacity to learn. We have several specialist members of staff whose role it is to help all children to achieve their potential.

SEND Inclusion Award & Wellbeing Award
This year we have signed up for a SEND Inclusion Award and a Well-being award. The purpose of these awards is to celebrate the work that we are already doing in school within these areas and to guide us with how to improve our practice further. The awards are expected to take around 15 months to complete and involve a process of self-evaluation, action planning, implementing actions taken from the action plan and then evaluating effectiveness and impact again at the end of the process. We hope that these awards will help us to improve our provision and will provide evidence of the work that we are doing to keep standards high and to support our pupils with both their learning and emotional needs.
