Special Educational Needs

The Holywell vision is for a well planned continuum of provision from Reception to Year 6 which is in line with Kent's vision from birth to age 25 in Kent that meets the needs of children and young people with SEND and their families.

This means we work hard to integrate our educational offer with both health and social care and endeavor to work closely with parents and carers to ensure individual needs are met without unnecessary bureaucracy or delay. It also means a strong commitment to early intervention and prevention so that children’s and young people’s needs do not increase because early help is provided in a timely way.

We believe that every child and young person in our care should have their needs met, as far as possible, in
our community and that they should be offered high quality provision which ensures good health and care and
good educational progress and achievement.

There is a shared expectation that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, should be offered inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress in school and feel that they are a valued member of the wider school community.

Holywell School's SENCo is Mrs J Warner

She can be contacted by telephoning the main office on (01634) 388416 or emailing
