SEND

Our SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) policy is part of our Inclusion policy. This can be found under Key Documents and Policies.

September 

 

Well just like that, we are back open. The children have transitioned well and have adapted to the new way the school is running. We have invited all parents of children with additional needs to meet with us, the SEND team to discuss any possible changes to their medical conditions, changes in learning as well as a catch up of their needs. Please bring the completed proforma, which is also below should you need another copy. Appointments are available to book via the school office, so please call to arrange an appointment, whether it be face to face or via Zoom. We look forward to seeing you all over the next few weeks. 

 

If there is anything you require from us, please email or call the office and we can get back to you. 

 

Kind regards 


Mrs Harper and Mrs Mackey

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
