SEND Information Report - Reviewed October 2021


'The Inclusion team create a calm and purposeful ‘can do’ attitude that permeates the whole school. It was a pleasure to return to Warren Dell to see how initiatives started a year ago have developed and new ideas have been implemented too.'


IQM Report 2020


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’. 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.’

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 -
