The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator at Horringer Court Middle School is Mrs Rachel Rossiter, who can be contacted via our school office.
Our SEND Information Report is available in the attachments section.
All Unity Schools Partnership schools strive to ensure that all children leave their settings as confident, resilient individuals, positive about their future and equipped to deal with challenges – having a learning difficulty or disability is not seen as a barrier to achievement.
There is a belief that all children can make good progress, whatever their starting point. We encourage our learners to strive constantly to gain independent learning skills and have the courage to take risks and develop personal responsibility to make a successful transition to adulthood.
The Code of Practice expects all schools to support children with SEND to:
- achieve their best
- become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and
- make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment,
further or higher education or training
(Code of Practice 6.1)
Horringer Court is an inclusive school which caters for all needs. The SENCo, Mrs Rachel Rossiter, has been accredited the National SENCo Award and the Advanced SENCo Award. Our staff have a wealth of experience in supporting a range of needs and we work closely with outside agencies such as Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Autism Outreach and Dyslexia Outreach.
At Horringer Court we strongly believe that high quality teaching, differentiated for individual pupils, is the first step in responding to pupils who have, or may have, SEN. Additional intervention and support cannot compensate for a lack of good quality teaching. At Horringer Court we regularly review the quality of teaching for ALL pupils.
