SEN Statement 

Rationale 

Landgate School is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all the learners / students at the school.  We believe that all learner /students have an entitlement to a broad and balance academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life.

We believe that all learner s/ students should be equally valued in school.  We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all can flourish and feel safe.

Landgate School is committed to inclusion.  Part of the school’s improvement plan is to develop cultures, policies and practices that include all learner / students.  We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learner / students.  This does not mean we will respond to all learners / students in the same way, but that we will respond in ways which take into account the learners /student varied life experiences and needs.
