All Devon Local Authority (LA) maintained schools have the same duties with regards to special educational needs and disabilities, and are expected to provide support for children who have additional needs. Pupils with Special Educational Needs are supported by the LA to ensure that they make the best possible progress in school. All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

The School Information Report (SIR) for SEND

Our SEND Information Report (attached below) is part of the Devon Local Offer for learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND pupils at Shute Community Primary School. We recognise and embrace the fact that every child is different and therefore, the educational need of every child is different. At Shute Community Primary School we value the involvement of all members of our school community.  We would welcome your feedback and future involvement in the review of our offer, so please do contact us.

All governing bodies of maintained schools and maintained nursery schools and the proprietors of academy schools have a legal duty to publish information on their website about the implementation of the governing body’s or the proprietor’s policy for pupils with SEND.  This information must be updated annually.

Shute Community Primary School is a mainstream primary school. We believe that every pupil should be able to participate in all aspects of school life. Educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background.
