Thamesview School is a specialist PD provision. Through the process of identification the school can work out what action needs to be taken to support a pupil. The four broad areas of need give and overview of the range that is planned for:
- Communication and Interaction, including ASD, Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism.
- Cognition and Learning, including MLD, SLD and PMLD
- Social, emotional and mental health difficulties, including ADD, ADHD and Attachment Disorder
- Sensory and/or Physical needs, including Vision Impairment, hearing impairment and physical disability

At Thamesview School we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a high quality provision that will enable them to achieve and make progress in all aspects of their life, not just academic outcomes.
Our intent is for students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) to have the same access to a broad and balanced academic curriculum, as well as the wider curriculum, in order for them to experience success in all aspects of their life. When a need is identified the school works inclusively across Curriculum, Pastoral and SEND in order to effectively meet the needs of all students. Suitable provisions and interventions are planned and implemented, which develop the abilities of students, to allow them to achieve well as individuals and members of the wider community.
Students with SEND make progress (from their starting points) in line with other non-SEND students.
Specialist resourced provision
Thamesview school has a specialist resourced provision with places for up to 9 students with physical disabilities. Every student who accesses the provision has an Education, health and care plan (EHCP) and places are allocated through the local authority. The provision is made up of 2 purpose-built welfare suites which students can access for physiotherapy, personal care and rest. Students are supported by a team of welfare assistants both in and out of the classroom in order to access all areas of the school and are fully integrated into mainstream lessons.
If you have any questions or would like to book a tour of the provision please contact SENCO@thamesview.kent.sch.uk
