SEN and Inclusion
What is our approach to teaching pupils with SEN?
We aim to provide every child with access to a broad and balanced education. Every effort is made to enable them to learn and grow independently. Pupils with SEND are able to fully access the curriculum by being provided with extra support or additional resources where appropriate and by removing any barriers to learning.
Quality First Teaching
The child’s class teacher is responsible and accountable for the progress and development of all the pupils in their class. This is called ‘Quality First Teaching’. The teacher will take steps to provide differentiated learning opportunities to aid the pupil’s academic progression and enable the teacher to better understand the provision and teaching style that needs to be applied.
If a pupil has been identified as possibly having SEND, they will be closely monitored by teaching staff in order to gauge their level of learning and possible difficulties, through the use of our graduated approach. (See next page). This will involve liaison with parents, SENCO and outside agencies where necessary.
Children who are identified as SEND will have an IEP, written by the class teacher and may receive targeted or specialist support where appropriate as well as Quality First Teach (Universal support). Each child with SEND will have specific targets that are reviewed and updated half-termly. We believe that parents are a child’s first teachers and therefore know their child best. Therefore we work alongside parents of children with SEND to best to support their child’s needs.
