“The inclusion manager and special educational needs coordinator (SENCo) are highly effective leaders. They ensure that they accurately identify pupils’ barriers to learning and that teachers meet pupils’ needs. They check that provision is supporting pupils’ achievement effectively.” (Ofsted 2019)
Some pupils will, permanently or from time to time, have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of their age. Some may have disabilities that prevent or hinder them from making use of all of the facilities provided for our pupils.
As a school, we are dedicated to giving these children individual consideration and will make special provision for them, working in partnership with outside support agencies where necessary (eg. speech and language therapy services), in order to allow them to fully access the curriculum and make full use of the facilities available to all of our pupils here at Laureate.
It is our intention that the needs of all pupils are identified and met as soon as possible. This is usually by the end of the reception year. All children, whether they have special educational needs or not, have an equal opportunity to participate in the full curriculum of the school.
Every effort is made to ensure that the work is suitable, regardless of ability, and that all children feel valued and are able to achieve success.
Our dedicated team of support staff work with small groups of children on intervention programmes for speech and language, reading, literacy and numeracy, to support them in reaching their full potential. These programmes have proved to be very successful and parents are kept fully informed of their child’s progress at parent review meetings.
