ORCHARD SCHOOL POLICIES

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The Orchard School is a Special School for students with Social, Emotional and/or Mental
Health Difficulties (SEMH) formerly Behaviour and Learning difficulties. Every student in the
school will have Education, Health Care Plans (E H C Plans) for this as their primary SEND.

They may also have secondary learning difficulties which also impact on their learning.

SEMH has been described as a learning difficulty where children and young people
demonstrate features of emotional and behavioural difficulties such as: being withdrawn or
isolated, disruptive and disturbing; being hyperactive and lacking concentration; having
immature social skills; or presenting challenging behaviours arising from other complex
special needs. Learning difficulties can arise for children and young people with SEMH
because their difficulties can affect their ability to cope with school routines and
relationships.

The SEND Policy for The Orchard School, therefore takes into account the varied and specific
difficulties each student in the school community presents.
