We enable all children to engage fully in all aspects of school life. To do this, we:
Each child’s teacher will be finding ways to support them such as:
- Well matched activities to the ability need of each child.
- Adapting learning materials such as equipment and activities to suit each child’s needs
- Offer small group support to promote skills identified in the child’s Support Plan
- Ensure that all children with SEND are fully included in all activities of the school in order to promote the highest levels of achievement, for example; ensuring that children with language delay are supported with visual aids and prompts.
- Ensure that all pupils have access to the school curriculum and all school activities, for example; additional adult support to model and support learning.
- Ensure every child has the entitlement to a sense of achievement through celebrating progress with parents, for example; we have a weekly achievement assembly where academic and non-academic progress is celebrated.
- When planning activities such as visits and trips SEND children are considered to ensure they can fully participate, for example; staff will visit places and complete risk assessments.
With the permission of parents we may seek additional advice from outside specialists such as health professionals, specialist teachers or educational psychologists who would:
- Carry out further assessment of the child’s needs
- Provide advice to schools on how to best support the child
- Suggest resources that would help the child make progress
Our teachers/teaching assistants work in partnership with parents and the SENDCo to find ways to support each child with their needs, including giving parents ideas on how to help their child at home
