We are committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for all of our children and we are proud of our inclusive approach to education.
Yerbury, like all schools in Islington, is committed to meeting the needs of all pupils including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), which we call SEN for short.
We are a mainstream primary school and welcome children with SEN in the areas of: communication and interaction; cognition and learning; social, emotional and mental health difficulties; sensory and physical needs and medical needs.
This includes (but is not limited to) conditions such as: Autism (ASD); ADHD; Specific learning difficulties (SpLDs) like dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dyspraxia; depression, anxiety, eating disorders and attachment disorders; vision or hearing impairment, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, and Down’s Syndrome.
Our expectation is that children and young people with SEN will receive an education that enables them to make progress so that they:
achieve their best
become confident individuals living fulfilling lives
make a successful transition on to secondary education and adulthood
We will use our best endeavours to make sure that a pupil with SEN gets the support they need – this means doing everything we can to meet the pupils’ special educational needs.
If you have a child with SEN who is considering joining Yerbury, or if you have concerns about your child’s current progress, we hope you will find the information in these pages useful.
