Special Educational Needs

Buildwas is an inclusive school which encourages all pupils to achieve their potential. Quality teaching is vital; however, for some children there are occasions when further additional support and targeted intervention programmes are needed to help them achieve their targets.

Following key changes regarding the new Special Education Needs (SEN) Code of Practice from September 2014, our school's SEND Information Report, outlining how we support SEND pupils in our school, was written following consultation with children and parents during Summer Term 2014. This was developed further and an updated version was published in June 2015. Please find below, the most recent SEND Information Report:

For pupils who are disabled and require e.g. wheelchair access, there is ramp access into the main school hall from the lower school site; and ramp access into the demountable classrooms on the upper school site. If visiting the school, please call prior to arriving so access can be arranged for you if necessary.
