Jesus said, ‘”Come, live your life the way God wants you to”

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
