Name and Address of SENCO:
Mrs J Taylor
We are a highly inclusive school in which he needs of all pupils are taken seriously and supported in an individualised way. Staff are sensitive to the needs of every child and through working wit the SENCO and external professionals aim to deliver the highest standard of education for all children regardless of their needs.
We believe in an inclusive approach to teaching and learning and that all children should be supported to reach their full potential. Quality first teaching is used to ensure pupils are accessing the full curriculum, lessons are differentiated and adapted to meet the needs of all children including those with SEND. Scaffolds and practical resources are provided to support children to work independently. Research evidence is used to plan effective interventions and staff receive training to ensure that the delivery of such interventions has the desired impact. Children with SEN are included in all aspects of school life and are encouraged to join clubs and participate in all activities.
Early identification of children’s needs is key to ensuring that provision for children with SEND is in place to meet their individual needs. Staff work closely together to plan an appropriate curriculum to meet their individual targets. We believe in early intervention and aim to address any emerging need as soon as possible. We encourage parental input when planning the provision for individual pupils. The progress of all children on the SEND register are reviewed regularly in collaboration with families and relevant professionals.
All children are seen as individuals and staff have high expectations for every child. All children, including those with SEND, are encouraged to be independent, confident, motivated life-long learners.
Please see our full SEND Report, provided in the key policies and reports area of this page.
We urge parents / carers with any concerns regarding the SEND policy or the provision made for their child to speak to the school as soon as possible and, in the first instance, to the class teacher or the SENCO. If parents / carers feel their child's needs are still not being met they should make an appointment to see the Headteacher.
If concerns are still unresolved parents / carers may wish to engage with PDET’s Complaints policy procedures - https://www.pdet.org.uk/key-documents/policies - NB - any issue relating to statutory SEN assessments should be pursued with the relevant Local Authority and not via PDET’s Complaints policy.
