SEND and Additional Needs

Welcome to our Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) information page

South Somerset Partnership School is a complex pupil referral unit.  We provide education for any young person from KS1 – 4 who is unable to attend their mainstream school.  This includes pupils at risk of exclusion or pupils who have been permanently excluded, as well as those suffering from mental health needs.  At South Somerset Partnership School we believe that each pupil has individual and unique needs.  We want all pupils to achieve their full potential by providing the best possible learning conditions for each individual.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Claire Martin

Our EHCP (Education Health Care Plan) coordinator is Claire Martin

Our SEND governor is Anne Ottery

All governing bodies of maintained schools have a legal duty to publish information on their website about how they support students with SEND.  This information must be updated regularly.  The required information is listed in the Special Educational Need and Disability Code of Practice: 0-25 years (2015.)

The following documents provide details for parents/carers on how SSPS support young people with SEND.

If you need independent advice, you can contact Somerset SENDIAS (Special Educational Needs and Disability Information, Advice and Support.) SENDIAS provide free, impartial information and advice to parents, carers and young people about Special Educational Needs and Disability. This includes information about EHC (Educational Health Care) plans
