SEND

For further information about our SEND provision, please contact our SENCo, Mrs Jo Briggs on:

Tel: 01702 475689

or contact her through the office email: office@ourladyoflourdes.southend.sch.uk

All mainstream schools (which includes maintained schools and academies) have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with SEND and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.  All schools are supported to be inclusive, with the needs of pupils with SEND being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.

Additionally, schools have to provide details of the school specific offer which should reflect Southend Borough Council’s Local Offer.

The SEN code of practise identifies four main areas of SEN:

1. Communication and Interaction

2. Cognition and Learning

3. Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties

4. Sensory and/or Physical Needs

Our School Offer provides details of the resources, interventions etc. that we provide at OLOL to support children with SEND.  Due to the ever-changing needs of our children, there may be additional support available that has not been covered in this document.  If you would like further information about what we offer at OLOL, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our SENCo, Mrs Briggs.
