At Henry Cavendish we believe that all pupils have a common entitlement to a broad, balanced, creative and relevant academic and social curriculum, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life. We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all pupils. This does not mean that we treat all pupils in the same way, but that we respond to pupils in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs. We strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop a safe, healthy environment where all pupils can flourish and develop the skills to continue as lifelong learners.

We recognise the crucial role played by parents, carers and families in improving outcomes for pupils, and the important role of the local community. We aim to develop the whole child, ensuring that they become self-confident, flexible, inquisitive learners who are emotionally literate, self-aware and happy members of the school community.

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Information Report for Children with SEND

All Lambeth maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a Special Educational Need/s and or Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.
The school will meet the needs of children with the following SEND:
• Communication and interaction
• Cognition and learning
• Social, mental and emotional health
• Sensory /physical

The information in our SEND report details the offer within the school and ways in which parents, children and young people may access the support required.
