SEND Information Report                          - School Local Offer

Our Information Report - Local Offer For Special Educational Needs And Disability (SEND) - June 2018

In line with the Special Educational Needs and Disability, Code of Practice 2014 the school is delighted to publish its SEND Information Report ('Local Offer') to our families. We hope this will allow you to fully consider the educational provision, context and learning ethos of the school to meet the needs of our children and young people.

Please read the start of our 'Local Offer' but also click on the link below to read the full report.

The Cedar School is a maintained special school in Nursling, Southampton for children with complex physical, health and learning difficulties.      

All children have a range of Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) and as such have a joint health, care and education plan (EHC) or are moving through this statutory process.

We have children with a combination of SEND which could range from Physical Difficulties (PD),  Hearing Impairment (HI), Visual Impairment (VI), Multi-sensory Impairment (MSI) Autism (ASD), Moderate learning Difficulties (MLD), Profound and Multiple learning Difficulties (PMLD), Severe learning difficulties (SLD) and associated behavioural difficulties and complex health needs,  

The Cedar School believes that we all learn from each other (‘Partners in learning’), old and young, and every member of the school is accepted for who they are, and what they can do, and not from what other people think they should be. The school currently has 80 places.

The school offers a specialised learning environment with a range of extension rooms and areas to further support the SEN requirements of our young people. The school has a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room, soft play room, adapted Independence kitchen, outside learning classroom and sensory garden, as well as adapted play equipment and a range of outside learning spaces to enrich our curriculum offer. The school also has 3 minibuses to support our learning curriculum as we regularly go on visits out into the community.
