SEND Information Report - Reviewed October 2021



The Special Education Needs or Disability (SEND) Information Report below may be of use to you if your child has (or you think they may have) SEND. The definition of Special Educational Needs or Disability is:

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 him or her.


A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions

(SEND Code of Practice 2015).


Under the new Code of Practice four broad areas of need are given:


· Communication and Interaction

· Cognition and Learning

· Social, Emotional and Mental Health

· Sensory/Physical


However, pupils’ needs may change and often cut across two or more of these areas.


We hope you find the below report useful. If you have any further questions please contact the school’s qualified Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, Mrs Barton.


If you have a complaint about the provision for your child, in the first instance please contact our SENCO (Kellie Barton -

We believe that all children have the entitlement to learning experiences which will enable them to achieve their maximum potential in terms of their social, emotional and academic development. We teach all of our children that ‘Fair isn’t equal, fair is when everyone gets what they need.’



At Warren Dell, we are proud not only to hold the Inclusion Quality Mark but to be recognised by them as a ‘Flagship School for Inclusion’. The following is an extract from our latest review report:


‘Warren Dell is thriving and excelling as every single member of the staff team is committed to the school and highly valued by the Headteacher and Leadership Team. The staff team has, over time, built up very strong relationships with families. This vitally important work has resulted in a high degree of trust and honesty and a very good understanding of how the school can best support pupils and their families. This has been very beneficial during the pandemic, as staff continue to go the extra mile to ensure that learning is tailored to the needs of individual pupils and well balanced so that families have the minimum additional pressures. For some pupils this means staff are literally taking the learning to their doorsteps and for others it is online or in the classroom. The overwhelming feeling from parents is that the school is like a supportive family and they appreciate the commitment of all staff. Parents who have children with additional needs appreciate the help that their children have received and also know that they can ask for anything they need. As one parent said, “If I could give the school five stars, I would.”



Having discussed the progress made since the last IQM review and the school’s plans for the future, I am of the opinion that the school should continue to hold Flagship School status and be reviewed again in 12 months’ time
