SEND

Ethos

Every child deserves to be safe and loved, have a healthy and happy childhood, be free from harm and have the chance to make the most of their talents and fulfil their potential.

We are an inclusive school; we welcome and celebrate diversity. We believe that high self-esteem and self-confidence are crucial to a child’s well-being. We have a caring, understanding team of staff looking after our children. Pupils are supported with their social and emotional development throughout the school day across the curriculum, and in extended learning time during extra-curricular activities. Our PSHE curriculum (Personal, Social and Health Education) underpins our inclusive ethos.

Aims

We are committed to using our best endeavours to provide an appropriate and high quality education for all children at our school which enables them to:

- Achieve their best;

- Become confident individuals, living fulfilling lives;

- Make successful transition to their next phase of education.

We consider every teacher to be a teacher of every child, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We have the highest aspirations and expectations for all pupils, including those with special educational needs/disabilities. We aim to achieve a community where parents and those working in school have a mutual trust and confidence in each other. This is created through clear, consistent approaches to communication and collaborative working, enabling outstanding outcomes for children with SEND. We aim to provide all children, including those with SEND, with a broad, balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible and ensures they are fully included in all aspects of school life and feel equally valued and fully part of the school community.
