Providing for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) is a key part of a successful inclusive school. There is a shared expectation that all pupils regardless of their specific needs should be offered inclusive quality teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress and feel that they are a valued member of the wider school community.
The school may offer a range of provision to support children with communication and interaction, cognition and learning difficulties, social, mental and health problems or sensory and physical needs. Additional services may also be accessed via the Quality First Education Trust, the local authority or other agencies.
We aim to provide induction, training, coaching and support to help teachers achieve good practice in teaching all children. This is achieved by working with parents and children and staff by monitoring plans, lessons and books, providing interventions, and seeking external advice to ensure that all children receive the provision they require.
Our Special Education Needs Policy is designed to promote pupils working towards becoming independent and resilient learners and should not be seen in isolation. You can find our Special Educational Needs Policy and SEND Information report on our Policies page.
If you wish to talk to us about your child’s needs or provisions please speak to your child’s class teacher or ask to speak with the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO), Suzette Coleman.
