Special Educational Needs and / or a Disability can affect many children throughout their school career and beyond. Whilst disabilities generally affect children long term, not all SEN difficulties should be seen as ‘Life Long’.
SEND is seen by our school as the child requiring provision that is additional to, or different from the rest of the class. For example they may have additional needs due to dyslexia, coordination problems, number understanding, significant sight problems – the list is endless and every child is unique – however a carefully planned approach is needed, additional to high quality class teaching in order for these children to achieve as well as they can.
At St Hild's CE Primary School we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.
At St Hild's we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress.
Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils whose circumstances require additional consideration by those who work with them to support their SEN.
There are now four broad areas of SEND, these are:
- Communication and Interaction
This area of need includes children with Autism Spectrum Condition and those with Speech, Language and Communication Needs
- Cognition and Learning
This includes children with Specific Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
This includes any pupils who have an emotional, social or mental health need that is impacting on their ability to learn
- Sensory and/or Physical Difficulties
This area includes children with hearing impairment, visual impairment, multi-sensory impairment and physical difficulties.
From September 2014, the Government has asked all Local Authorities (LAs) and schools in the UK to publish in one place and keep under review, information about the services and provision they expect to be available for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND).
This is know as the Local Offer
. If you would like to discuss our Local Offer in detail please contact the Headteacher to arrange an appointment.
The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choices for families and it will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision available in their local area.
At St Hild's College C.E. Primary School we are committed to the equal inclusion of all pupils in all areas of primary school life. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all of our pupils and take into account the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
