Statement of Intent

 

Dawley Brook Primary School is an inclusive one-form entry mainstream primary school with Nursery and, since September 2023, a SEND Base provision called Oak Tree.

Dawley Brook Primary School believes that all pupils are entitled to an education that enables them to achieve their best, become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and make a successful transition into adulthood.

This policy outlines the framework the school will use in meeting its duties, obligations and principal equality values in providing an appropriate high-quality education for pupils with SEND.

Through successful implementation of this policy, the school aims to eliminate discrimination and promote equal opportunities.

 

Dawley Brook Primary School will work with Dudley Local Authority, or equivalent, in ensuring that the following principles underpin this policy:

  • The involvement of pupils and their parents in decision-making.

  • The early identification of pupils’ needs and early intervention to support them.

  • A focus on inclusive practice and removing barriers to learning.

  • Collaboration between education, health and social care services to provide support.

  • High-quality provision to meet the needs of pupils with SEND.

  • Greater choice and control for pupils and their parents over their support.

  • Successful preparation for adulthood, including independent living and employment.

 

Under the Equality Act 2010, a disability is a physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect on a person’s ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. For the purposes of this policy, a pupil is defined as having SEND if they have:

  • A significantly greater difficulty in learning than most others of the same age.

  • A disability or health condition that prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities used by peers of the same age in mainstream settings.

  • Special educational provision that is additional to or different from that made generally for other children or young people of the same age by mainstream settings.
