Additional Educational Needs
The 2001 SEN Code put a greater emphasis on learning outcomes for students than on statutory procedures and paperwork.
It set out five principles that:
- children with AEN should have their needs met
- their needs will normally be met within mainstream schools
- the views of children should be sought and taken into account
- parents have a vital role to play in supporting their children’s education
- children with AEN should be offered full access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum in the Foundation stage and later years
At Christleton High School, all students are fully integrated into all aspects of school life, academic and social. The education of children with additional needs is a partnership between school on behalf of the Local Authority, parents and students.
Achievement of this aim requires co-operation and understanding from all partners, including the students themselves, as with the successful education of any student.
The school objective for students with Special Needs is consistent with the school’s main aim:
"To enable all students to recognise and achieve their full potential in life. As a supportive and stimulating community we will encourage individual self - development. We will foster high personal and moral values and concern for others."
