Sunnyfields Primary

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Sunnyfields School aims to make every effort to secure provision for any child with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities and to improve their outcomes through high aspirations and expectations for children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities.

All Barnet Local Authority (LA) schools are expected to identify and support pupils with special educational needs and to support them in making the best possible progress. Schools are required to be inclusive, with the needs of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

Schools have a duty to publish SEN information on their website that is reviewed annually. The Local Authority is also expected to publish information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with SEN aged 0-25. This is called the 'Local Offer'. The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and information being given to families. It will be an important resource for parents and carers in understanding the range of services and provision in their local area.

Please telephone the school to make an appointment with the SENCO, Mrs Dheraj, if you would like to discuss your child’s needs.

This area will show all documents uploaded to the /docs/send folder.

Documents will be shown in alphabetical order.
To list in date order, the folder should contain the word 'letter' or 'minute'.
