Special Educational Needs
All children are valued, respected and welcomed to the school whatever their additional educational need. We will support their learning and ensure they are fully included in all school activities, making full use of externally provided facilities where appropriate.
We have a carefully planned intervention programme for children who need additional help which involves withdrawing them from lessons to work in small groups with the Teaching Assistant from their class. This enables them to work with an adult whom they know well and who can pre-teach and re-visit concepts taught in the core curriculum lessons.
Other children may need specific intervention on a 1:1 or small group basis and these needs will be identified and monitored in a Support and Achievement Plan (SAP) which is reviewed regularly by the Inclusion manager, class teacher and parents. The intervention programmes are closely monitored our school Inclusion manager, who is very experienced in this area.
The Inclusion manager for Calcot Schools is Miss E Kirkby and she can contacted via the office.
Schools have been asked to give their responses to the following questions for publication in the Authority’s Local Offer. This information will help parents, carers and young people to understand how our schools manage Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
