SEND and inclusion at Barley Close
We recognise and fully support the statutory rights of all pupils to equal opportunities. In line with our Special Needs Policy we believe that all children should receive a broad and balanced curriculum, relevant to the individual needs, with access to all areas of the curriculum.
In planning and teaching the National Curriculum teachers will have due regard to the following principles:
National Curriculum and the statutory assessment arrangements.
We have a number of children who have been placed on the SEN/D register, and Support Plans have been written for them all. Support Plans are written by the class teacher in consultation with parents and Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) as part of a graduated approach of SEN support. Each child is set personalised termly targets for achievement. Support Plans are monitored and reviewed at least 3x per year or more frequently if outcomes have been met. Parents are involved with every step of this process. As a result of focused teaching and support many of the children make good progress. Class teachers with support from the SENCo usually identify special educational needs but occasionally parents will request that a child should be assessed. The Educational Psychologist or Inclusion Support Service and other external professionals may be involved if it is considered additional support or advice is need. Educational Psychology support is limited and children are prioritised according to need.
