How does the school teach children with SEND and how is the curriculum adapted to each child’s needs?

Our provision includes:


  • Quality First inclusive teaching with appropriate, targeted differentiation in place, for example:
    • differentiated learning materials
    • use of a range of teaching and learning styles
    • Access to ICT/Technology
    • Flexible peer groupings (small group work)
    • Appropriate adaptations to the learning environment e.g. appropriate seating plan, independent work stations, hand rails.
  • Proven interventions that have been identified to achieve specific targets, e.g. pre/post teaching of curriculum content/vocabulary.
  • Additional focused support from a teacher/teaching assistant in/out of class. This should be purposeful, with the ultimate aim to develop the pupil’s independence and maximise pupils contact with his/her class teacher.
  • Encouraging/involving pupils in the wider life of the school e.g. after school enrichment activities e.g. drama/music/sport clubs


Some of the interventions that we have found to be effective in helping children to make accelerated progress are the following:

  • Read Write Inc, (phonics One to one)
  • Precision Teaching
  • NELI (speech and language)
  • Counselling
  • Lego Therapy
  • Pre/post teaching of lesson objectives/content
  • Handwriting
  • Maths No Problem - Lesson Review
  • Success @ Arithmetic
