Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Special Educational Needs

Mrs Gemma Didcock is our Inclusion Leader. She is responsible for SEND across the school. Mrs Didcock is contactable via the school office or by email: inclusion@loddon.wokingham.sch.uk

A child or young person has a special educational need if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. 

A learning difficulty or disability is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others the same age.

Special educational provision means educational provision that is additional to, or different from, that made generally for others of the same age in a mainstream setting in England.

Further information can be found in the 'Code of Practice 2014'

We use the following forms:

'Identification of Needs' form for when we first have concerns

'Identification Criteria' for when we are trying to decide if a pupil has an SEN

'SEND Profile' to record a pupil's additional provision and outcomes. The profile is used for children at SEN Support and with an EHCP

Below is our SEN Information Report

Please read our policies, our local offer and Wokingham's local offer for more information.
