SEND Local Offer
High-quality teaching is our first step in responding to pupils who have SEND. Teachers plan lessons carefully and each lesson is differentiated to meet individual children’s needs. Sometimes when we differentiate learning, children all do the same task, but a different outcome is expected. Sometimes all children learn the same skill but at different levels. Teachers deliver these lessons and include a range of strategies to support individual needs with their quality first teaching.
In some instances, small group or one to one support from Teaching Assistants will be available where appropriate. Some children may need further intervention support which is mainly delivered by Teaching Assistants outside the main lessons.
Every class has a Provision Map to highlight extra interventions that support the needs of the class. The extra support will be shared with parents at parent consultation meetings and additional provision map meetings. In some situations when despite having a provision map, there are issues with progress, the Inclusion Manager may suggest the involvement of an outside professional. Parents will be fully involved at every stage of the process.
