Merstham Park School welcomes all children, we celebrate difference and seek to learn from and with each other. We would encourage parents and carers to make an appointment to discuss individual needs and how we can work together to ensure every child’s needs are met.
Students with an EHCP
An Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) is a statutory document and will replace the Statement of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. An EHCP covers the student from birth to 25 years if the young person remains in education or training. An EHCP looks at the education, health and care needs of a child/young person and focuses on outcomes. It looks at services and support to help the child/young person achieve their outcomes, and will be an opportunity to think more creatively about support we can provide to ensure that they exceed expectations.
Students with Additional Educational Needs
A student is considered to have Additional Educational Needs (AEN) if he or she has a learning, language, emotional, behavioural or physical difficulty or need, leading to significantly greater difficulty in accessing learning than the majority of students of the same age, for whatever reason, which calls for special or additional educational provision to be made for him or her. It is likely that these students will have previously been known as ‘school action’ or ‘school action plus’.
