Additional and Special Educational Needs

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?

Our curriculum is designed to match your child’s needs by offering personalised learning which is differentiated according to their ability and their style of learning. This will develop their skills as learners and help them to become more independent, enabling them to progress and reach their full potential. The classroom environment may also be adapted to suit individual needs e.g. providing a workstation or a visual timetable. Where a child has been identified with SEN, their work will often be differentiated by the class teacher to enable them to access the curriculum more easily.

How do you promote positive relationships and ensure good, ongoing communication with families?

All parents are encouraged to contribute to their child’s education. This happens through:
- discussions with the class teacher – either formally at Support Plan meetings and parent/teacher consultations, or informally at the end of the day, for example. These discussions are really important – not least so that we know about your child in the home setting, and we can tell you about what we are doing in school and how your child is doing in school. This helps to make sure that we are doing similar things to support them at home, and we can share what is working well at home and in school.
- discussions with other professionals e.g. the SENCO, Speech & Language Therapist, Educational Psychologist. Information from outside professionals is shared with you (either verbally or written reports or both) .
This may also happen through other means e.g. a home/school communication book, or TAC (Team Around the Child) meetings.

Regular meetings (three times a year) also provide opportunities for parents/carers to discuss the curriculum with the class teacher.
