SEN

All Gateshead Local Authority (LA) maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress and achieve their potential in school. This report is published following the guidelines from the current code of practice (2014) as well making sure that it complies with Children and Families Act (2014) and schedule 1 of the Special Education Needs and Disability Regulations (2014).

All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) being met in any educational setting. At Furrowfield School we have a graduated approach to SEND, a continuum of support for children in order to enable them to make progress and to achieve in their future adult life.
