Our Vision for Special Educational Needs at Carr Lodge

Here at Carr Lodge we welcome pupils with a wide variety of special educational needs. We see it as our mission to take each unique individual and develop from their needs, the type of environment and learning which enables them to thrive. This means that all staff have an inclusive approach, creating a calm and caring atmosphere and working as a team to maximize staff strengths and continuing to build skills around current pupils’ needs. All children regardless of need are encouraged to participate fully in every aspect of school life and our approach to engagement with parents means that they are central to the process of identifying need and target setting. Ensuring parents’ views determine the way in which assessments are sought, we regularly seek external expertise regularly from outside agencies to adapt and develop personal plans and improve our SEND offer.
