Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Pupils with SEN make good progress:

This is because the support and resources they receive ensure that provision is finely matched to their next learning steps.
Pupils who benefit from the Pupil Premium make good or better progress and their needs are accurately identified and a range of effective strategies put in place to improve their learning.

 Ofsted, 2013

We are committed to providing a broad and creative curriculum which is accessible to all of our pupils. We aim to identify any child who may have SEN early in their school life, and we put provisions in place to support their learning.  Pupils with SEN will be identified by their teachers through regular class assessments and the assistance of our dedicated Inclusion Leader. Every child meeting the SEN criteria will have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) produced and will have extra support through modified work set by teachers and the aid of the Inclusion leader and teaching assistants if needed.

We are committed to providing a broad and creative curriculum which is accessible to all of our pupils.

We also understand the difficulty many of our pupils face speaking English as an additional language. These pupils receive help from a peripatetic teaching assistant and two dedicated Polish speaking teaching assistants.

Parents play a vital role in all stages of this process. Our parents are invited to discuss the IEP provided and have full access to our Inclusion Leader.

We also have close links with Race Equality and Minority Achievement English as an Additional Language (REMA EAL) and Traveller Education Services (REMA TES).
