How does the school make adaptations to the curriculum to support pupils with SEND?

 

We pride ourselves providing an inclusive education which supports all pupils to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of school life.

Our curriculum includes, not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also a range of additional opportunities to enrich the experiences of our children.

Our curriculum also includes the social aspects that are essential for life-long learning, personal growth and development of independence.

We ensure that all pupils have access to a curriculum that supports that individual learning outcomes and allows them to engage with all school activities.

We use various strategies to make adaptations to the curriculum to support are children with SEN:

· Use a range of teaching and learning styles

· Differentiated learning materials.

· Practical resources to support learning tasks

· Access to ICT and Technology

· Provide additional in class support

· Provide additional out of class support

· Opportunity for outdoor learning- ie: Forest School

· Wellbeing programmes or bespoke packages to support SEMH needs.

· Provide enrichment opportunities to enhance learning experiences

· Use flexible groupings – including small group work and intervention

· Give every child the entitlement to a sense of achievement.

· Use appropriate rewards and sanctions

· Ensure that staff are aware of individual needs and how these can be effectively met through high quality planning, teaching and differentiation.

· Set outcomes and targets to stretch the abilities of the pupil and allow them to make progress.

· Review outcomes and short-term targets for pupils as part of the assess, plan do and review process.

For some children, it may be necessary to provide a personalised timetable of provision, which allows them to access provision from many areas of school in order to meet their individual needs. Personalised timetables are implemented in consultation with the SENDCO, class teacher, 1:1 support, parents and external professionals.
