Special Educational Needs

Aims

We aim to:

  • Enable all children to access a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which includes the Foundation Stage and National Curriculum.
  • Enable all children to reach their full potential through provision which is suitably differentiated.
  • Provide trained and supportive staff to meet the diversity of needs within the school.
  • Work in partnership with parents and outside agencies in identifying, planning for, supporting and reviewing their children’s needs.

Special educational provision is educational or training provision that is additional to or different from that made generally for others the same age. This means provision that goes beyond the differentiated approaches and learning arrangements normally provided as part of high quality, personalised teaching. It may take the form of additional support from within a setting or require involvement of specialist staff or support services.

Our school has a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) who is responsible for the management of provision and or support for identified pupils with SEND. They will also coach and support teachers and other staff to enable them to provide appropriate assessment and focussed provision for children in their class with SEND. 
All teachers are teachers of SEND pupils and as such provide quality first teaching which takes account of the particular individual needs of pupils with SEN within the classroom.
