The Coral Reef Centre provides places for children from a wide area of Surrey via Surrey County Council SEND Admissions, for children who have an Education Health and Care Plan for pupils with communication and interaction needs including autism. These places are offered via Surrey after consultations have been sent to the school.
All children who attend the Coral Reef Centre are integrated into mainstream classes for at least 50% of their school day with support from their centre learning support assistants, and receive Speech and Language Therapy as per the provision outlined in their EHCP.
All teaching is planned to meet the same national requirements as the mainstream school (i.e. Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum). However, the pace of work and strategies may be different. Each child has SEN support targets and will be working on key skills and targets. The centre is able to provide small group work (usually classes of up to 10) and some one-to-one activities in order to meet these targets.
Our school is a community which reflects the variety of strengths and difficulties individuals have. The centre is an integral part of the school and a highly valued resource.
Please look at the Meadhurst SEND Policy for further details about the school and the Centres and at the Surrey Local Offer page https://www.surreylocaloffer.org for details about what Surrey can offer.
