SEND at Cherry Tree Hill Primary School
At Cherry Tree Hill Primary School we have a graduated approach to SEND, ensuring early identification of needs and a continuum of support for children in order to enable them to make progress. Please refer to our Special Educational Needs and Disability Policy, which outlines the purpose, nature and management of special educational needs within our school.
Definition of Special Educational Needs and Disability
The Code of Practice (2015) states that a child or young person (CYP) has a special educational need or disability if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they have :
- a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
- a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools.

What is the Local Offer?
Derby’s SEND Local Offer is an online one stop shop for parents and young people to find out about all the services and support on offer to children and young people from birth to 25 who have special educational needs and/or Disabilities (SEND)in the city. Derby City Council, along with all other local authorities, are required to publish information about services they expect to be available in their area. A link to the Derby City’s Local Offer is available at the bottom of the page.
What is the Special Educational Needs Information Report
Schools utilise the LA Local Offer to meet the needs of SEND pupils as determined by the school policy and the provision that the school is able to provide. Schools refer to this as ‘The Special Educational Needs Information Report.’ Please see the link below.
