The name of our special needs coordinator (SENCO) is Mrs Laura Parson who is also our reception teacher.
The whole team at the school is committed to providing a welcoming and stimulating environment to support the needs and develop the learning of the children and families in the community. Every child and family in our community is valued and diversity is celebrated. Our school is staffed by a team of qualified teachers and teaching assistants. The school provides a broad and balanced curriculum in a safe, stimulating and caring environment which allows everyone to achieve, develop, learn and grow.
All areas of school life are inclusive and the teaching is tailored towards individual learning, providing challenge and support; encouraging everyone to reach their full potential. Staff provide a positive ethos to enable the children to work towards the development of ‘life skills’ and instil life -long learning aspirations for everyone through a range of activities which are fun and enjoyable.
We endeavour to make every effort to achieve maximum inclusion of all pupils whilst meeting pupils’ individual needs. We recognise the entitlement of all pupils to a balanced, broadly based curriculum and understand the wider benefits that this provides for ALL children. Our SEND policy reinforces the need for quality first teaching that is fully inclusive. The Governing Body will ensure that appropriate provision will be made for all pupils with SEND.
The Aims and Objectives of this Policy:
We believe that barriers to learning and development can be overcome to allow all children to reach their full potential.
