OFSTED recognised that Christ the King has good procedures and systems in place to identify and help children who have ‘Special Needs’. We regularly monitor the children and provide specific help, individual work programmes and, where possible, support time to help all such pupils. Some children who require greater support have their educational needs, adult support time and resources identified in an agreed Education and Health Care plan.
The school always involves parents where there is concern and will, with parents’ knowledge, involve outside advisory and support agencies, if necessary. The school’s Special Needs Policy follows DFE guidelines and is available for viewing in school. The Governors review the policy annually and it has also been amended to reflect the DFE SEN Code of Practice.
