SEND Information Report

Our SEND Information Report – which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer – provides details about how we support children and young people with Special Educational Needs in our school.

The SEND Information Report was reviewed and updated on March 2021.

At Burnopfield we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.

This SEND Information Report should be read alongside the school’s SEND Policy, the Equalities Information and Objectives and the Accessibility Plan.

Intent for SEND children at Burnopfield School

Every child with SEND will achieve well based on their starting points and end points during their time in our school. SEND children will fulfill their potential and access our full curriculum with suitable adaptations where needed.

We endeavor to remove barriers to learning for our children by differentiating appropriately, giving correct support and making reasonable adjustments to our provision. We will develop the knowledge, understanding and skills of our SEND children and encourage them to apply what they know with increasing fluency and independence.
