We adapt the curriculum and learning environment for pupils with SEN:
Our SENDCo oversees the operation of the SEND Policy and works alongside class teachers and parents to coordinate provision for children with SEND. The class teacher will plan for the child and use regular assessment to ensure that progress in every area is made. This is Quality First Teaching and is where the work is highly differentiated and suits the needs of all children, it comes in the form of a lesson rather than an intervention programme.
Alongside Quality First Teaching, that your child will receive in lessons, there may be a Teaching Assistant (TA) or Higher Level teaching Assistant (HLTA) working with your child, either individually or as part of a group, if this is seen as necessary by the class teacher. Children may be taken out of the classroom for additional teaching sessions or intervention.
The most common areas within which a child may need extra support and input in our school are:
- Comprehension skills
- Speech, language and communication skills
- Fine motor and handwriting skills
- Gross motor skills
- Social interaction skills
- Emotional and mental well-being
- Mathematical understanding
We support these needs by providing:
- Additional teaching assistants to support during lessons
- one to one support, interventions and programmes for Maths, Reading, Motor Skills, Social Skills, Emotional needs
- small group interventions for Maths, Reading, Social Skills and Motor Skills
- resources and equipment e.g. coloured overlays, laptops/iPads, writing boards, wobble boards, spell-checkers, vocabulary books, computer software, recordable pens/whiteboards
More details on how we adapt information, our environment and curriculum can be found in the Accessibility Plan which you ca find in the School Policies section of our website.
