What is the profile of SEN at Millfield Primary School?

The Code of Practice 2014 defines SEN as:

 

'A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:

  • ​have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age: or
  • have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools'.
 

 

Currently our profile for 2016-17 shows that at Millfield Primary School 14% of our children are identified as having SEN, with approximately 4% having a Statement/Education Health and Care Plan.

 

This is made up of the following groups:

 

  • ​32% of those children on our SEN Profile have needs linked to Cognition and Learning including maths, reading, writing and a range of specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia.
  • 50% of those children on our SEN Profile have needs linked to Communication and Interaction including speech, language and social communication and interaction disorders such as Asperger's and Autism.
  • 11% of those children on our SEN Profile have needs linked to Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties including ADHD, ADD, eating disorders, anxiety disorders and depression.
  • 8% of those children on our SEN Profile have needs linked to Physical and/or Sensory difficulties including disabilities affecting vision, hearing and mobility.
Wishing everyone a great half term holiday - make the most of the lovely weather. We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday 5th June ready for the last half term of this academic year - it will no doubt be just as busy as the others!
