Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
At Belmont, we believe that all of our children have an equal right of access to a broad and balanced curriculum which enables them to achieve educational success and to reach their full potential. We use our best endeavours to meet each child's additional needs and make reasonable adjustments in order for them and their families to fully participate in the life of the School.
The London Borough of Hounslow’s Local Offer, sets out information about the local authority’s provision for children with special educational needs and/ or disability. The link to the Hounslow Local Offer is at the bottom of this page.
We understand that some children, at some point during their primary years, may need additional support to access the learning at their level. We seek to identify and assess such 'special educational needs' promptly, in consultation with parents. Children may receive support individually, in small groups or through resources and equipment made available in class, and progress is monitored regularly.
Colleagues from outside agencies such as Hounslow's Early Intervention Service - which includes advisory teachers, educational psychologists, education welfare and family support workers - and health professionals such as speech and language or occupational therapists, are involved for the small proportion of children for whom more specialist support and advice are needed.
