SEN/D encompasses a wide range of needs. Some of these may be long lasting, others that just require support in some way for a short time. These needs may be of a learning nature and we pride ourselves on supporting not only those pupils who may have a specific learning difficulty but also our many students who are very able but also require support to achieve their fullest potential. Our links with local Secondary schools and specialised teaching sessions enable this to happen as well as our on-line literacy programmes where pupils learning between home and school, term time and holidays is seamless. Or the needs may be physical and sensory, social and emotional, medical or speech and language and communication. At The Grove we currently have both a KS1 and KS2 speech and language and communication centre. Places are limited to just 20, catering for a wide area of Surrey. These pupils often travel to school in taxis, and places are only for those pupils with a statement of educational needs - soon to be converted to Education, Health Care Plans. Surrey holds panel meetings and it is the LEA who allocates places.
The following SEND INFORMATION REPORT complies with:
