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 learning style. 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. Where a student has been identified with SEN, work will often be differentiated or adapted 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?

Subject teachers and the SENCo are happy to discuss how well your child is doing; these discussions do not need to be limited to the regular Provision Plan meetings. All students have a home/school contact book so that parents/carers and teachers can monitor progress, record concerns, share achievements and communicate effectively between home and school
All reports from outside agencies are passed to you with their ideas for support or resources that may be used at home.
Regular meetings (three times a year) also provide opportunities for parents/carers to discuss the curriculum with the subject teacher or the SENCo.
