St Philip’s School strives to provide the best possible provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs. ‘Children have S.E.N. if they have a learning difficulty. This means they have a significantly greater difficulty in learning and developing skills than the majority of children of the same age; or they may have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of facilities. Where appropriate we will seek help and advice from outside professionals such as Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and the Behaviour Support Service.


We aim to work in partnership with parents, both in identifying a child’s special educational needs and in supporting them. When a child has been identified as having special educational needs we will provide additional support for that child.  For children who require support from outside agencies or specialists, an individual education plan (IEP).  Children who have a statement of SEN will have an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) drawn up for them. The IEP details the targets the pupil will work on for that term and ensures that parents and pupils are able to see the small steps of progress. In order that parents are fully involved in the process we hold termly additional Parents’ evenings for pupils with SEN. This gives the opportunity for parents to discuss their child’s IEP or EHCP targets so they can support them at home, as well as well as sharing any concerns.
