Special Educational Needs and Disability

 Our core principles are shared by the SEN Code of Practice:

 • We try to involve children and parents in decision making; ensuring they are given sufficient information regarding SEN provision;

• We collaborate across education, health and social care, coordinated by the local authority;

• We do our very best to support the transition process, including those joining us in Year 7 and onto post 16 education or training.

We believe that all children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they achieve their potential, become confident individuals and are able to make a successful transition to their lives beyond The Community College.
We access a wide range of external services for support and advice – such as Woodlands Outreach, CAMHS, Educational Psychology Service, Occupational Therapy, Sensory Inclusion Service, Autism West Midlands, Learning Support Advisory Team and the Pastoral Team in the school.
If you would like to discuss anything about SEN/D please feel free to contact our SENCO, Mrs Plastow by emailing .
