SEN & Inclusion

Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND) and Inclusion information

 

Local Authority SEND information

 

All schools (maintained) in Barnet have a parallel approach to meeting the needs of pupils with SEND and are given support by the Local Authority to ensure that every pupil makes the best possible progress in school, regardless of their specific needs.   We are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that we are an inclusive school with the needs of pupils with SEND being met within Goldbeaters wherever possible.

 

The Local Authority has produced a Local Offer which sets out what’s ordinarily available in mainstream schools within Barnet and what provision we are expected to offer. 

 

Further information is also available on Barnet Local Authority’s SEN Local Offer webpage
