SEND

Our school ethos for SEND 

We aim to offer excellence and choice to all our children, whatever their ability or needs. We have high expectations of all our children. We aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation. We want all our children to feel that they are a valued part of our school community. 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.
This school provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all children. The National Curriculum is our starting point for planning that meets the specific needs of individuals and groups of children. When planning, teachers set suitable learning challenges and respond to children's diverse learning needs. This will include adapting the curriculum to make it accessible for children with SEND. 

Some children have barriers to learning that require particular action by the school. These requirements are likely to arise as a consequence of a child having special educational needs and/or a disability. Teachers take account of these requirements and make provision as required to support individuals or groups of children and thus enable them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities. Such children may need additional help or different help from that given to other children of the same age.
