SEN Information

SEND Information Report

As part of the government’s reforms around special educational needs (SEN) and with the introduction of the new code of Practice in September 2014, local authorities are required to publish a local offer showing the support available to disabled children and young people and those with SEN and their families and carers.

Please download below the Gateshead local offer information pack for parents and carers of children aged 5-16

This booklet was produced jointly by Gateshead Council and the health service in partnership with parents and carers. It will help us to make sure that we are providing the sort of services that families have told us they need. It will be reviewed every 12 months so that it continues to reflect the views and needs of families living in Gateshead.

Disabled Access

  • Step – free access
  • Disabled parking bay
  • Accessible toilets
  • Accessible dining area
  • Automatic doors which allow free movement around the school building.
  • A risk assessment carried out and personal evacuation plans have been completed for all pupils with physical difficulties. All staff working with the physically disabled pupils will be made aware of the plan.
