Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

We are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils and recognise that some of our children will need additional support. A Special Educational Need and is a difficulty or barrier that affects a child's ability to learn and to access the curriculum. A Disability is a long term health condition which causes a difficulty or barrier to learn or to access the curriculum.

 

We will facilitate the support of these pupils by following these objectives:

 

  • Involve parents/carers as partners
  • Ensure teachers provide quality first teaching, ensuring needs are met within the class
  • Provide and adapt provision for meeting pupils’ special educational needs and where necessary, through the development of individual or group learning interventions to further learning and skills
  • Foster and maintain links with all outside agencies, educational support services, secondary and special schools
  • Initiate and facilitate staff development programmes concerned with special educational needs. We strive to train all of our staff in a vast range of SEND as well as good quality interventions and stragegies to promote development
  • Offer a range of pastoral opportunities through:
    • 1:1 or group sessions with our trained mentor (ELSA),
    • Fun Friends
    • Lego Therapy
    • Drawing and Talking therapy  
  • Ensure that our school provides for equal access in line with the Disability Discrimination Act
