How will my child be supported in school?
Learning & Development
Class teachers have responsibility for enabling all learners to learn effectively. To achieve this they:
- Identify learners who require additional or different support in order to make progress
- With the support of learners, parents and carers regularly review and update targets on learner profiles
- Plan appropriate work and activities for all learners
- Ensure that the relevant support is available for all learners
- Differentiate the curriculum taking into account different learning styles, interests and abilities
- Ensure that all learners can be included in tasks and activities
- Monitor progress
- Celebrate achievement
Our inclusive approach to provision means that all our learners have their needs met by carefully differentiated lesson planning. Lessons are structured to provide a range of activities to suit the range of learning needs and a rigorous approach to monitoring and tracking progress supports the teachers with their planning. Support staff are deployed on a flexible basis according to the emerging needs of learners.
Interventions are small group or individual activities that are carefully planned to address a specific area of difficulty that a learner might be experiencing. The intervention groups are agreed by the class teachers and the senior leadership team to target individual or groups of children ensuing optimum progress is made. Many of the interventions are delivered by trained teaching assistants, working towards specific targets or outcomes for each child. The outcomes are carefully monitored by the SEND team.
Supporting the Well-being of All Learners
The school monitors learner well-being carefully and plans to support learners and their families in the best interests of each child. Class teachers have a responsibility to promote positive outcomes for all learners and they are obliged to act on any concerns that they may have regarding the well-being of a child in their care. If any member of staff has a concern about a child they will notify the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Aspinall who will then act upon the information given following the procedures outlined in the Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy.
Also, in addition to the PSHCE curriculum which covers many aspects of personal development, the school supports individuals and groups of learners in a range of ways, including through key worker support, the use of individual and small group interventions with school staff or external agencies and most importantly the positive classroom climate evident in all classes.
