SEND at Valley

Children with SEN have different needs, all children with SEN but without an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) are welcome to apply for a place at our school, in line with the school admissions policy. If a place is available, we will undertake to use our best endeavours, in partnership with parents, to make the provision required to meet the SEN of pupils at this school.  


For children with an EHCP, parents have the right to request a particular school and the local authority must comply with that preference and name the school in the EHC plan unless:

it would be unsuitable for the age, ability, aptitude or SEN of the child or young person;  


the attendance of the child or young person there would be incompatible with the efficient education of others, or the efficient use of resources.


At Sandbank and Valley Nursery Schools Federation, our guiding principle is one of Inclusion. All children are entitled to a broad, balanced curriculum. The School will endeavour to identify and break down possible barriers to learning and support children to make progress in accordance with their developmental stage.
