Welcome to KLB’s SEND department. The SEND Department works alongside all teachers and staff in the school to provide access to the curriculum for those with special educational needs and disabilities.


A message from the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCO), Karen John.

The SEND department at KLB school takes a holistic approach to each individual, putting the student at the centre of what we do. We listen to the young person and work with their family and the staff to build on the student’s strengths and find ways to reduce the barriers to personal, social and academic fulfilment. Across the school, we seek to normalise asking for help because most people, at some point, will require it; we recognise the strength of character needed to manage and overcome life’s challenges. Those with special educational needs are encouraged to take ownership of their success and celebrate their achievements.

The move from primary school to secondary school can be a difficult time for students with SEND. We are proud of the testimonials from parents and pupils who joined us in September 2019. Please read about their experiences, in their own words, to find out more about what we do. The Y6 Transition pages and the ‘KLB Transition Guide’ below will support you.

Transition guide

Most children are excited, and a little nervous, about the transition to secondary school. A small number of children will be very anxious about the move. Primary school staff sometimes suggest that a parent or carer contacts KLB to discuss an  individual’s transition. If you have concerns about your child’s move to secondary school, please read our Transition Guide and then get in touch.
