SEN and Disability
We closely monitor the work and progress of all pupils and are determined to meet the educational needs of all our children.
The school will modify/support the educational programme of all pupils with special educational needs as necessary. All teachers plan, set and mark work which is appropriate and relevant to the individual needs of pupils. The school has adopted the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is responsible for overseeing assessment and provision.
Sometimes, when a child is having general difficulties with a subject, it can be felt that extra support would be beneficial. Discussions between school staff and with parents may provide adequate insight into positive ways forward but occasionally external assistance is necessary.
Staff from the LA regularly visit our school to take small groups of children who are experiencing problems of a temporary or long term nature. You will be informed, in writing, before any additional provision is offered to your child and a signed agreement will need to be returned to school prior to any program of support commencing. Such staff are available to discuss progress by arrangement. We aim to prevent disabled pupils in our school being placed at substantial disadvantage. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that people with a disability are not treated differently without lawful justification. We will make reasonable adjustments for disabled pupils and we will know when we have succeeded when disabled pupils are participating fully in school life. We also recognise that there are children for whom accelerated provision is necessary. This may be in any area of the curriculum and where this need is identified we will consult with parents regarding the best ways of developing their child’s abilities.
The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Mrs Teresa Forrest and the Governor with specific responsibility for Inclusion is Gayle Ludgate.
