Special Educational Needs & Disabled Information
Northampton School for Boys has a higher proportion of students with a statement of special educational needs or Education Health Care Plan than most schools locally and as a result we do not seek to closely define the special educational needs for which we will make provision. Historically we have had success in providing for a wide range of different needs, when budget, resources and availability of expertise has allowed. This has included students with:
- Autistic Spectrum Disorders
- Visual Impairment
- Hearing Impairment
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Emotional and Social Difficulties
In admitting students with special educational needs we would expect to have informative discussions with both the student's family and the Local Authority to ascertain the suitability of our provision. We understand that it is initially our responsibility to make provision for a student with Special Educational Needs through a devolved SEND budget. Thereafter we are aware of the process of applying for High Needs Funding if the student's and the schools needs make that a necessity. As a mainstream school, it would clearly be difficult for us to
make provision for students whose needs and/or demands are significant, severe or profound - to the extent that it could be argued that they would be most appropriately placed in a special school.
Please refer to the SEND report for my details.
We would like to make it as easy as possible for parents or guardians with disabilities to access school information as well as the school site.
If any disabled parent or guardian would like to discuss their needs please contact the SEND co-ordinator: email@example.com
