SEND - SEN Information Report

Our School Offer has been written and co-produced with families, children and young people.  It has been developed throughout 2014 and was last updated in November 2016.  We welcome any feedback and comments on it.

All Southwark maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. For more information on Southwark’s Local offer, follow this link:  http://localoffer.southwark.gov.uk/

Surrey Square Primary is a fully inclusive school that welcomes and celebrates diversity.  We are truly committed to our school mission:

‘Personal and academic excellence; everyone, everyday.’

The School’s SEND Offer should be read in consultation with other key school policies that are accessible on the schools website:  Teaching and Learning Policy; Safeguarding Policy; Behaviour Policy; Administration of Medicine Policy; Single Equalities Scheme; Intimate Care Policy and the Anti-bullying policy.
