New Bewerley Community School

SEND Provision

At New Bewerley Community School and Resource Provision, we are committed to being fully inclusive, ensuring that all members of our school are treated fairly and equally.

Our policy for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) and Inclusion demonstrates our commitment to and belief in the fundamental principles outlined in the Equality Act 2014, Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014 and the SEND code of practice 0-25 years.

Our inclusive approach to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, SEND, shows our commitment to each child being happy, healthy and fulfilling their true potential in school. By working in partnership with children, families and partner agencies, we ensure that all children receive the support they need to access all aspects of school life.

We welcome families to visit our Mainstream and Resource Provision facilities in school.  Our staff are highly trained in a range of needs including Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs, Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC), Physical and Medical needs and Trauma Informed Practice.

Our SEND Governor is Mr. Harding.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child and would like to speak with our SEND and Inclusion Team then please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Cat Barnes on in school.


Who are Leeds SENDIASS? (Special Educational Needs Disabilities Information Advice Support Service)

SENDIAS has recently produced a short service video outlining who Leeds SENDIASS (Special Educational Needs and Disability Information Advice and Support Service) are, what they do and how they deliver the service.  Please use the link to the video if you would like to learn more about the service.
