The term Special Educational Needs’ has a statutory meaning as defined in the 1988 Education Act. The 1993 Act places a particular responsibility on schools to fulfil their duties. The needs of all pupils within the school who have special educational needs will be Pupils will have the greatest possible access to a broad and balanced education including the National Curriculumaddressed. Such pupils will have the greatest possible access to a broad and balanced education including the National Curriculum. The class teacher is responsible for providing most of the special needs teaching but when it is deemed more beneficial children may be withdrawn for help on an individual or group basis. When necessary, expert help from external sources may be called upon.
For a very few pupils it may be necessary to proceed to the formal assessment stage which will involve the Local Education Authority. The school has a member of staff who is designated as the SENDCo (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator). Parents who have particular concerns are invited to meet with the SENDCo.
Attached below is an outline of how Special Needs Provision is managed at Birkbeck, this is called our SEN Local Offer. It is designed to help parents see how we manage the provision of children who may have a special or additional need.
