Our SEND provision is coordinated by the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, Mr Trevor Murphy and the Pastoral Team.
The Local Offer is a Local Authority’s publication of all the provision “they expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have SEN or are disabled, including those who do not have Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans.” (Section 4.1 SEND Code of Practice, January 2015)
Ealing SEND Local Offer is available here.
This accessibility plan outlines how access to Villiers High School is to be improved for pupils, staff and visitors with disabilities in a given timeframe. At Villiers, we anticipate the need to make reasonable adjustments where ever practicable.
