Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) 2016/2017

Welcome to the SEND section of the school website.

Tillingbourne Junior School is dedicated to providing the best possible support for children with SEND. We work closely with pupils, parents/carers and outside agencies to support all pupils.

September 2014 saw the implementation of the new Code of Practice. This has resulted in lots of changes taking place for the funding, provision and support for children with SEND. The emphasis is placing the pupil and their family at the heart of all interventions/support that is offered. Two years on, the Code of Practice has been fully implemented within the school setting. In response to these changes, an Information Report is produced at the end of the academic year showing parents how pupils have been supported together with addressing various questions parents may have.

Tillingbourne also provides a selection of support and interventions. This is in the form of a Provision Map in four main areas of need as identified by the SEND Code of Practice. 

  1. Cognition and Learning
  2. Communication and Interaction
  3. Emotional, Mental and Social Health
  4. Physical And Sensory

 The Provision Map outlines:

  • Wave 1 – provision for all pupils in the school, Quality First Teaching


  • Wave 2 – in addition to Wave 1 pupils who require slightly more specific support to work towards or meet end of year expectations   


  • Wave 3personalised support identified through specific assessments resulting from pupils working below age related expectations and pupils who have an Education Health Care Plan.

We hope the documents below are able to answer most of your questions about the SEND Provision at Tillingbourne School; however there is nothing better than seeing the school first hand so please contact the school office to arrange a visit.

The school’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) has an open door policy and can be contacted through the school office on 01483 504384 or via email at: office@tillingbourne.surrey.sch.uk where an appointment can be arranged.
