Meeting the Needs of Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
All Bromley Schools are committed to and adopt a similar approach to meeting the needs of all pupils including those with special educational needs. There is a shared expectation that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, should be offered inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress in school and feel that they are a valued member of the wider school community.
Langley Park School for Boys (LPSB) is an inclusive school working towards the ethos of Quality First Teaching. LPSB offers the following range of provision to support children with communication and interaction, cognition and learning difficulties, social, mental and emotional health problems, sensory or physical needs.
The range of support deployed will be tailored to individual need following thorough assessment by internal or external agencies. It is designed to promote pupils working towards becoming independent, resilient learners and should not be seen in isolation.

The Additional Educational Needs co-ordinator (AENCO) with responsibility for students with additional educational needs but without a statement of SEN is Mrs J Von Waskowski.
