MIDHURST ROTHER COLLEGE
Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
At Midhurst Rother College we welcome everyone into our community. We endeavour to make available inclusive provision to ensure that all students, including those identified with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), can enjoy and benefit from a broad and balanced education with access to the National Curriculum at an appropriate level, so that they may achieve their full potential.
We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students and offer a range of personalised learning interventions/opportunities to support this. We are very proud of all our students and their achievements.
Definition of SEND
‘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’ (p.4, SEND Code of Practice 2014).
A student may be identified as having a Special Educational Need (SEN) at any stage during his/her education. This may be a long term difficulty requiring continuing support or a short term difficulty requiring a specific intervention.
Who would be my first point of contact if I want to discuss something about my child?
Director of AEN - concerns about their Special Education Needs
Head of House – general concerns - wellbeing; behaviour; attendance or medical issues
Subject Teachers – for specific subject based concerns
