Special Educational Needs

Swakeleys School for Girls School Offer

A “School offer” is the provision made for pupils who may require additional help or support. This may include pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. It may also include pupils who require additional support to fulfil their academic potential.

What types of Special Educational Need (SEN) are there?
The school offer addresses four broad areas of need. These are:

  • Cognition and Learning
  • Communication and Interaction
  • Social, Mental, Emotional and Health
  • Physical and Sensory

How does the school categorise pupils?
At Swakeleys School For Girls a large number of pupils with SEN have these needs met at school without the need for external intervention. We refer to these pupils as being in the category of SEN Support 1.

Pupils who have been referred to one or more outside agencies are placed in the category SEN Support 2.

Education, Health and Care Plans are gradually replacing Statements of Special Educational Need. Plans outline the amount and type of support in place for pupils.
