Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
John Kyrle High School and Sixth Form Centre’s Local offer of provision for Students with Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)
This document forms part of Herefordshire’s local offer
JKHS is a fully inclusive school who ensure that all students achieve their potential personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs). This document is intended to give you information regarding the ways in which we ensure we support all of our students, including those with SEND in order that they can realise their full potential. It may not list every resource, intervention and strategy we utilise in order to achieve this, as these are continually developed and used to modify our provision to meet the changing requirements for individual students.
SEND: A child or young person has special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A learning difficulty or disability is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age. Special educational provision means educational or training provision that is additional to, or different from, that made generally for others of the same age in a mainstream setting in England.
The school’s SEND policy can be accessed here. If you would like any further information about what we offer then please do not hesitate to contact us directly. Telephone: 01989 764358.
