Inclusion & Special Educational Needs

Mrs Jo Botley is our SENDCO.



I work with children and staff across the school to identify needs, ensure that pupils are supported where necessary and that these interventions are effective. If you have any concerns about your child please speak to their class teacher. If you are still concerned then please contact me by email on 


In this section you will find information on Special Educational Needs and information for parents/carers to support their child. You will also find information about the West Sussex Local Offer.


Here at Fairway, we use the West Sussex Graduated Response approach to SEND Provision to ensure we:


  • assess all pupils against the five stages to ensure appropriate provision

  • check the accuracy of the school’s SEND Register

  • ensure class teachers are responsible for the provision of all learners, including those pupils with SEND

  • outline and communicate expectations for different stages of provision

  • clarify assessment and monitoring systems at different stages and who is responsible

  • enable senior leaders to check provision for identified pupils as part of pupil progress meetings

  • provide early intervention to prevent pupils from developing a special educational need

  • clarify provision where lack of progress for individual pupils is causing concern

  • ensure that additional support is time limited and rooted in a Cycle of Assess Plan Do Review, in line with the SEND Code of Practice.

  • ensure that all pupils are monitored closely and no pupil ‘falls through the net’.
