Special Educational Needs and Disability

The Beacon School Mission Statement is fully inclusive of all students with SEND and encompasses the aspirations of all.

We are committed to providing an outstanding education where all students achieve academic success.  Our inspirational and challenging curriculum allows abilities to flourish and self-confidence to thrive.

Every individual is valued, learning is enjoyed, success is celebrated and responsibility is shared enabling our students to grow into responsible, questioning citizens who play a full and active role in society.

The Learning Support Department at The Beacon School is comprised of experienced and dedicated teachers and Teacher Assistants and is managed by the Special Needs Coordinator (SENCO).  The role of the SENCO is to ensure a smooth transfer of SEND pupils from primary school and to ensure that appropriate provision is in place once at The Beacon School. 

If you have any enquiries please email: Mrs N. Masson  

The Government has introduced new legislation 'The Children and Families Act, 2014' that requires schools, parents/carers and services to work in a new, more coordinated way from September 2014.  A useful guide of the main changes has been produced by Surrey County Council and you can access the information using the link below.

Every school is required to provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date information about the available provision and how to access it.  This is known as the Local Offer.

The SEN Information Report is a summary of how The Beacon School identifies, assesses and make provision for students with SEND.  This report is written in conjunction with the school's SEND Policy and Local Offer.
