How we adapt the curriculum and learning environment for children & young people with SEN

Stanley Crook Primary School is an inclusive school.

Children who are identified as having SEND are supported by all staff in school in all aspects of school life.

Every child will be placed upon the SEND register to monitor their needs and will be given a support plan with specific and achievable targets, which are shared with parents/guardians. Children may need to work with external agencies and professionals to help support their academic learning.

We strive for all our children to follow the National Curriculum from Year 1 – Year 6 and in EYFS we use Development Matters / EYFS ELGs.

The school’s teaching and curriculum is tailored to meet individual pupils’ needs. If appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented. Children may benefit from the following to support their needs:

  • Quality First Teaching
  • A variety of teaching and learning styles
  • Differentiated learning materials and resources
  • Access to ICT
  • Additional in class support
  • Additional out of class support with specific interventions
  • Support through – one to one interaction, group activities or whole class work
  • Motor skills programme
  • Speech & Language Therapist
  • Emotional Well Being Programmes
  • Support by School Nurse
  • A broad range of extra-curricular activities, including a variety of after-school clubs, one to one support and booster sessions
  • Work with external agencies – CAMHS, Speech & Language, Occupational Therapy, Looked After Children Team, Educational Psychologist, EAL Team
  • Assessment procedures to ensure children are monitored and given the appropriate support.

Every term, there is a parent’s evening with the class teacher. This gives the opportunity for the teacher to inform parents how their child is doing, the progress they have made and their next steps. An interim report is sent out in February and a full report is sent out at the end of the academic year. SEN Parent’s meetings are held annually.

We track and assess individual progress and update support plans every term. Support plans will have SMART targets – Small, measurable, achievable and realistic targets. This ensures all children make progress. We review any interventions and programmes each term, to ensure children are receiving the best support. The Headteacher, SENCO and all subject co-ordinators will observe lessons and check books to ensure your child is making progress.

Parents can speak to staff at anytime and the school prides itself on excellent communication between school and home, in order that all children are well supported.
