SEN & Disabilities
Harris Primary Academy Kent House is an inclusive academy and offers a range of provision to support children with communication and interaction, cognition and learning difficulties, social, mental and emotional health problems or sensory or physical needs. We believe in a partnership approach, working closely with parents, staff and external professionals endeavouring to tailor the provision to reduce the barriers to their learning that may be present to give them every opportunity to succeed and meet their full potential. We provide formal times for parents to feedback to us at review meetings but equally welcome and encourage parents to do this as and when any new developments or observations occur as/when necessary.
The range of support deployed will be determined thorough assessment by internal systems or observations and/or external agencies as well as collaboration with parents. It is designed to promote pupils working towards becoming independent and resilient learners and should not be seen in isolation.
The SEND information report has been co-produced with key stakeholders including parents/carers, staff and governors through yearly parent focus groups, surveys, SEND Governor liaison meetings and allocated time within a staff meeting.
