September 2014 saw the implementation of the new Code of Practice. This has resulted in various changes taking place for funding, provision and support for children with SEND. The emphasis places the pupil and their family at the heart of all interventions/support that is offered.

Tillingbourne provides a selection of support and interventions through the Graduated Approach – Assess, Plan, Do, Review.

There are four main areas of need as identified by the SEND Code of Practice 2014:

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health
  • Physical and Sensory Needs

 The provision map outlines Tillingbourne’s Local Offer:
