We believe every pupil has an entitlement to develop their full potential. Educational experiences are provided which develop pupils' achievements and recognise their individuality. Diversity is valued as a rich resource, which supports the learning of all. In this school, we recognise a child's right to a broad, balanced, relevant and challenging curriculum, which is appropriate to their individual abilities, talents and personal qualities.
Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, Miss Cross, is responsible for ensuring that provision is made for special attention to be given to children who experience learning difficulties. Provision varies according to the needs of the individual child. There is an agreed procedure that is standard throughout the county. Parents are kept informed and are consulted at every stage. If we feel your child would benefit from having some form of extra support a meeting will be arranged with you, and an SEND Support Plan (SSP) will be set up to ensure your child receives focused support. The SSP sets out targets in small achievable steps and is written and reviewed by the parents, class teacher with advice from the SENDCo. You will be kept informed of your child's progress. Teaching assistants work on a 'one to one' or small group basis, under the direction of the class teacher, with those children who have been identified as needing extra support.
If your child does not require an SSP but requires extra support then they will receive targeted support that is documented on a provision map. This records the intervention, the frequency of the intervention, and the child's start and end levels in order to track the impact of the intervention. A provision map is updated every 6 weeks and at the end of each academic year it is archived. This way the next teacher is aware of the interventions that each child has already received.
We liaise closely with members of the County Specialist Teaching Service, Educational Psychology Service, Pupil Referral Unit and colleagues from the Vale of Aylesbury Primary Care Trust.
