All of our staff teach all children, including those with Special Educational, Physical or Medical Needs.
Our ethos is to identify each child’s individual needs as early as possible. If a child has a disability, or significantly greater learning difficulties than other children, then we will start a programme of School Support and involve parents in any planning. Working together, the parents and relevant class teacher (under the guidance of the school’s Special Needs Coordinator) will create an Individual Support Plan. If a child has more complex needs an Education Health and Care Plan may be initiated.
In addition to classroom differentiation, the needs of SEND children are provided for by an experienced team of Teaching Assistants through small group or individual interventions. To ensure that we are providing the correct care and support we review every Individual Support Plan at least once a term. We also closely monitor progress through the school’s tracking system, where SEND is a highlighted group.
To ensure that children receive the correct interventions for their needs, we work closely with other support agencies such as Speech and Language Therapists, The Educational Psychology Service, CISS (County Inclusive Support Service) which supports children on the autistic spectrum as well as behavioural difficulties, Sensory Support and Occupational Therapists.
