Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

SEN & Disabilities

Information on where the Local Authority’s Local Offer can be found at: http://localoffer.southwark.gov.uk/

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) section of our website. All pupils have the right to achieve their maximum academic and social potential.   At the School we believe that all pupils have learning differences rather than learning difficulties and it is our policy to identify and assess these differences and ensure that learning is supported and differentiated to ensure outstanding progress is made by all pupils.

We offer a range of support to develop teachers expertise and additional support within the classroom, this includes; drop-in sessions, in class training and observations from the Principal and Harris Federation Advisory Teacher for SEN, as well as specialist advice/input within the classroom.  

You will find detailed provision maps of what our School can currently offer for your child, depending on their needs and the support they require. If you have any additional questions, concerns or worries, please do not hesitate to contact the SENCo or a member of our leadership team.

Our SENCo is: Mrs Lisa Campbell

She can be contacted via the school office at: info@harrisfreeschoolpeckham.org.uk or 020 7394 5700.

Harris Primary Free School Peckham’s visions for pupils with SEND

Harris Primary Free School Peckham is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education for all children. We believe that all children, including those identified as having Special Educational Needs as well as every other student, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum. This curriculum should be accessible to them, and they will be fully included in all aspects of School  life. We recognise that pupils learn at different rates and that there are many factors affecting achievement, including ability, emotional state, age and maturity. We are particularly aware of the needs of our pupils, for whom maturity is a crucial factor in terms of readiness to learn. We believe that many pupils, at some time in their School career, may experience difficulties which affect their learning, and we recognise that these may be long or short term. At the School we aim to identify these needs as they arise and provide teaching and learning contexts, which enable every child to achieve to his or her full potential.

It is also worth noting that from 1st September 2014, there are some changes to SEN legislation, following the Children’s and Families Act 2014. A summary of key changes are below, but please visit the link at the bottom of the page for further information.

The SEN Code of Practice key changes

The Code of Practice (2014) covers the 0-25 age range and includes guidance relating to disabled children and young people as well as those with SEN

  • There is a clearer focus on the participation of children and young people and parents in decision-making at individual and strategic levels
  • There is a stronger focus on high aspirations and on improving outcomes for children and young people
  • It includes guidance on the joint planning and commissioning of services to ensure close co-operation between education, health and social care
  • It includes guidance on publishing a Local Offer of support for children and young people with SEN or disabilities
  • For children and young people with more complex needs a coordinated assessment process and the new 0-25 Education, Health and Care plan (EHC plan) replace statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments (LDAs)
  • There is a greater focus on support that enables those with SEN to succeed in their education and make a successful transition to adulthood
