Special Education Needs

Within the Jefferys Education Partnership, we believe that:

  • All children are valued and included regardless of needs or abilities.
  • All children are entitled to a broad, balanced and enriching curriculum which is adapted as appropriate to meet individual needs.
  • All our teachers are teachers of children with special educational needs.
  • All our children can learn and make progress.
  • Effective assessment and provision for children with SEND will be secured in partnership with parent/carers, children, LA and other partners.
  • Maintaining children’s safety and wellbeing is central to their development.
