Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy and Report

Bishop Stopford School has a track record of success in providing for a wide range of differing needs. This includes catering for students with:

  • Autistic Spectrum Conditions
  • Visual Impairment
  • Hearing Impairment
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Emotional, Social and Mental Health Difficulties

We provide for differing needs in line with expectations of mainstream schools as detailed on the NCC local offer.

When considering admitting a student with special educational needs, discussions with the student's family and the Local Authority take place prior to admission to ascertain the suitability of provision. School initially makes provision for a student with Special Educational Needs through a devolved budget.

As a mainstream school, it is not always appropriate to make provision for students whose needs and/or demands are significant, severe or profound, because of the level of expertise available.
