SEND Support Offer – Arrangements for Students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Northfield School & Sports College, we are committed to promoting an inclusive approach to education, which involves creating an ethos of achievement for all students within a climate of high expectations. This aim can only be successfully realised through partnership with colleagues, parents and external agencies and active involvement of students. All young people at Northfield School & Sports College are valued equally and have the right to learn, achieve and participate fully in school. We all have a duty to foster independence, social skills and empower our students so that they can access further education and training.

Admission Arrangements for students with SEND

Northfield School & Sports College aims to be a fully inclusive school. In accordance with the Education Act 1996 and the SEND Code of Practice 2014, if a parent wishes to have their child with an EHC Plan educated in a mainstream school, the Local Authority must provide a place, unless this is incompatible with the efficient education of other children, and there are no reasonable adjustments that can be made to prevent the incompatibility. The Equality Act 2010 prohibits schools from discriminating against disabled children and young people in respect of admissions for a reason related to their disability.
