Additional Needs

Abilities of individual pupils are assessed weekly, termly and half-termly.  This information is then used to inform future planning and teaching. We use a half-termly target setting system to focus on individual, subject school needs, or specific Tracked groups

e.g. Gender, Disadvantaged, Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND). Children included have specific attainment targets set to achieve by the end of the half term with clear Actions of how staff will enable children to achieve them.

We have procedures and co-ordinators in place for SEND, Child Protection, Looked After Children, Racist Incidents, Prevent, Online Safety and Bullying issues.  Learners at risk are identified early and school works well with parents and external agencies to ensure they are supported and make progress.

Our Special Needs Leader (SENDCo) supports teachers with the writing of their termly Action plans, planning and teaching of SEND children and works alongside staff offering support. We work in partnership with external agencies and parents supporting many varieties of learning needs including Autism, Dyspraxia, Visually Impaired, Hearing Impaired, Aspergers Syndrome, ADHD, Severe Learning Delay, and Physical Impairments.

Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Multi-Agency Staff and Support Staff are used effectively to support individual and groups of pupils. We believe all learners are entitled to achieve their potential and ensure they have focussed adult support.
