SEND

Through all subjects we ensure that the school meets the needs of all, taking account of gender, ethnicity, culture, religion, language, age, ability, disability and social circumstances. It is important that in this school we meet the diverse needs of pupils to ensure inclusion for all and that all pupils are prepared for full participation in a multi-ethnic society. We also measure and assess the impact regularly in partnership with our SEN coordinator and individual teachers to ensure all children have equal access to succeeding in all areas.

Through appropriate curricular provision, we respect the fact that children:
• have different educational and behavioural needs and aspirations
• require different strategies for learning
• acquire, assimilate and communicate information at different rates
• need a range of different teaching approaches and experiences

Teachers respond to children’s needs by:
• providing support for children who need help with communication, language and literacy.
• planning to develop children’s understanding through the use of all available senses and experiences.
• planning for children’s full participation

  • what the law says they may be entitled to;
  • what is available for their child from early years settings, schools (including Academies and Free Schools), colleges and other services,
  • What is available from education, health and social care.
