Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Kenton prides itself on being a fully inclusive school and our motto of ‘all different all equal’ encompasses everything we do. Therefore, we are committed to a whole school approach to the education of learners with special educational needs (SEN).

We aim to ensure that every learner achieves their personal, social, emotional and academic potential in all areas of the curriculum. We recognise that individual learners have a variety of needs, which vary during their school career. We try to take account of such diversity with sufficient variety of provision to enable learners to broaden their learning experiences, to succeed at school, and to achieve high standards of performance – aiming, overall, to enable each learner to realise their full potential.

We have prepared a Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Policy and an Accessibility Plan which provide procedures and guidelines that we follow in order for Kenton to be as inclusive as we can possible.
