Mainstream schools, settings and colleges

  • The government is keen to give parents choice in education and believes that one way of doing this is to have different types of schools and other education settings.
  • The law requires all schools to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for children with a disability to make sure that they are not disadvantaged. They all have a special educational needs and disability co-ordinator (SENDCO) who makes sure that children get any extra support they need.
  • If the school thinks your child needs extra support, called special educational needs and disability (SEND) support, they will discuss this with you. Schools receive funding to provide this support as part of their core budget.

The majority of children with special educational needs and disability attend their local school.

  • With the right support, nearly all children with special educational needs and disability (SEND) can be successfully included in mainstream education. A mainstream school or setting will therefore be the right school for most children.
  • All mainstream state schools receive government money to provide extra help for children with special educational needs. The school decides how to use this money to support children with special educational needs and/or disabilities in the school.
  • Every teacher and early years practitioner is expected to teach children with special educational needs and all schools offer training to staff to make sure they can meet the range of needs of the pupils/students in the school. Some teachers have additional specialist qualifications.
  • In school all children have their learning planned, coordinated and evaluated by the class or subject teacher often with support from teaching assistants. 
  • In Camden we work closely with schools through our school improvement service. This service monitors and supports the work of Camden's schools, helping to support teaching and learning as well as leadership and management.
  • If a school believes your child has SEND, they will always discuss this with you. The school’s SEN information report will explain how each school works with parents to plan to meet each child’s needs. The same applies in an early years setting.

No Excuses: Camden's local offer - Quality teaching and learning for ALL learners

Camden schools’ SEN information reports

All Camden schools are required to set out their SEN information report. This will explain what the school does to identify special educational needs and disability and the support the school provides for children and young people who need additional help.

Every school will publish their SEN information report on their website. Direct links to the school webpages are set out below.

The quality of the school SEN information report will be monitored by the Camden school improvement service to ensure that all schools' offers meet the agreed standards.

Local provision for local children

Camden seeks to make provision for children and young people in local maintained provision wherever possible. This includes both mainstream and specialist provision, and also includes maintained provision in nearby boroughs. 

When considering specialist provision in neighbouring boroughs, parents are advised to consider Camden’s SEN transport policy. Where a child is eligible to receive transport assistance, this will be considered on the basis of the nearest suitable school to home.   

Links to specialist provision in neighbouring boroughs are below:

Where we cannot meet needs locally, Camden will consider funding independent provision that can meet the child’s needs. In exceptional cases, residential provision will be considered. A link to the Department for Education list of independent and non-maintained schools (also known as section 41 list) can be accessed by clicking the link.


For details about the range of colleges and education and training providers, please visit the colleges page. 

Other boroughs’ schools SEN information reports

The schools in other boroughs must also set out their school SEN information report. You may find this useful if you live in another borough but attend a school in Camden for example. You can access these via their website.

Below are links to the Local Offer website of neighbouring councils.
