Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

Since September 1st, 2014, the SEND code of practice has been in effect.

The aim of the reforms it brought about was to join provision across education, health, and care, which now spans birth to 25.  Intervention should be made at the earliest possible point in a child or young person’s life and they and their parents should be fully involved in decisions regarding their support and outcomes.

Teachers are responsible and accountable for the progress and development of the children in their class, even where children access support from Learning Support Assistants or specialist staff.

Everyone at KPI is committed to, and passionate about, providing the conditions and opportunities to enable any child, including those with additional needs, to be included in all aspects of school life and achieve their potential as an individual and as a learner.  We believe in the earliest possible intervention to support the children. This can, of course, take a number of forms;

  • Through Quality First Teaching, all class teachers must be aware of the needs and requirements of their pupils and plan and differentiate accordingly.

  • Through a staged approach (or Graduated Response) is at the heart of whole school practice as we are continually assessing, planning, implementing and reviewing our approach to teaching all children where a potential special educational need has been identified.  This process becomes increasingly personalised and responds over time to growing understanding of the child’s barriers and gaps in learning.

If your child’s teacher feels that intervention would support your child’s progress they will speak to you, as we believe that working in partnership with you gives each child the greatest chance of success.

If you feel your child is struggling in any way, please talk to your child’s class teacher or contact the school SENCo – Mrs Idell (

Rotherham’s Local Offer website is here to help parents and carers find support for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

All families need extra support from time-to-time. Whether this support is from relatives, friends, community groups, schools, children’s centres, leisure centres, doctor’s surgeries or specialist groups, any additional help can make a valuable contribution and difference to the lives of people who need them.
