At Elmhurst we recognise that sometimes learning can be challenging for some pupils. We provide quality first teaching for all pupils and when pupils have been identified as having additional needs we offer individualised support.
‘Ordinarily Available Provision’ promotes a consistent ethos to supporting children receiving SEND Support. This approach has been created by schools, professionals and parents and is a fantastic user-friendly, accessible resource for all. It outlines the special educational needs that children may have across the four broad areas, with easy to use provision suggestions for all members of school staff and families alike, as well as strategies for the whole school and quality first teaching.
Buckinghamshire Disabled Children Register
Parents/carers do not need to have a formal diagnosis to add their child/ren to the register.
What is the Disabled Children’s Register (Pinpoint)?
The Disabled Children’s Register for Buckinghamshire/Pinpoint is aimed at parents or carers of disabled children and young people, with or without a formal diagnosis.
This secure, voluntary database captures information about children and young people aged 0 to 19 years with special educational needs and disabilities who live in Buckinghamshire (or are the responsibility of the Local Authority).
The information, such as types of disabilities, ages, and locations, helps to plan, monitor, and develop facilities and services for disabled children and their families.
What is a Max Card?
The Max Card is the UK’s leading discount card for foster families and families of children with additional needs. Families can use their Max Card at venues across the UK to get free or discounted admission.
