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.  A vast amount of information regarding SEND is available on Barnet Local Authority’s SEN Local Offer webpage.



Inclusion at Goldbeaters


At Goldbeaters, we have an Inclusion Team that works together to support children with SEND, EAL, behaviour difficulties, social difficulties and a range of other learning needs within the school.  The team includes the people listed below as well as many teaching assistants and professionals from outside agencies.


Mrs Thakker – Deputy Team / SENCO / Safeguarding / TAs & LSAs / Literacy Team / Early Help

Mrs Dawes – Lead Deputy / Safeguarding Officer / Working with parents / Early Help / Literacy Team

Mrs Power – Deputy Team / EYFS Lead / Literacy Team

Mrs Kabs – Office Administrator / Parent Liaison / Attendance and punctuality concerns


Our SEN Governor is Ms Sarah Fox


Our School Information Report answers questions set out in the Code of Practice 2020 about how we welcome and support children with additional needs and the provision available within our school.
