At Newlands Federation, all pupils are welcome and valued regardless of their starting points. The term “Special Educational Needs” refers to children who experience barriers to learning under the categories of Cognition and Learning; Social, Emotional and Mental Health; Sensory and Physical; Communication and Interaction and may require additional support.
The school has a dedicated, highly experienced non-class based SLT including a qualified SENCO who ensures that the needs of these pupils are being met through high quality teaching in the classroom, additional intervention and specialist support. They work closely with Surrey County Council and the NHS to access support from (for example) link Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Special Teachers for Inclusive Practice, Mental Health teams and more. Cathy Hollis is the Federation SENCO working across both schools. You can contact her by email email@example.com or through the school office.
Our schools are inclusive and nurturing: the achievement, attitude and wellbeing of every child matters. We aim to ensure all pupils, including those with SEND, achieve their aspirations and we go over and above to ensure they can access all aspects of the curriculum to give them the best possible start in life.
At Newlands Federation we are supported by Surrey County Council to ensure all pupils are able to progress well and meet their full potential. This support enables us to be as inclusive as possible and to aim to meet the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities in a mainstream setting.
