Please see below links to information about some key areas where the school is specifically funded for individual pupils or groups of pupils, and links to Surrey's Local Offer and Pond Meadow's SEN information Report.
The Local Offer and the SEN Information Report
These files provide the outline information about Surrey LA's Local Offer and the School's response to the 14 questions on SEND agreed by the SE group of 7 Local Authorities. It is through these two documents that the school seeks to provide information to parents about the new SEND arrangements but we would advise all parents to look first of all at the Surrey SEND local offer site.
Information on Surrey's local offer can be found here:
The School's response to the 14 SEND questions that help to outline our offer is set out in the form of 'Question and Answer' within the 'SEN Information Report'. This is the first year that we have formatted it this way and would welcome feedback on its accessibility and clarity.
