SEND (Special Education Needs and Disability)
Mrs McFarlane is our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator at Woodsetts Primary School.
At Woodsetts Primary we strive for excellence today to prepare all students to succeed in a challenging world tomorrow.
We aim to:
Enable children with SEND to participate fully in the life of the school via a curriculum that is broad, balanced appropriately, differentiated (for more able children see the school’s policy for gifted and talented children) and delivered in ways that make it accessible to those with different learning styles.
Ensure that the parents are involved at the earliest possible stage of the process of defining needs and seeking provision of any additional resources.
Enable the teacher to fulfil his / her role towards the child with SEND adequately.
Create and provide an environment which encourages tolerance, empathy and awareness of the differing needs of every child.
Encourage children with SEND to be involved in and take part in decisions about their education.
Ensure that every child experiences success and that success is acclaimed and built upon.
Cultivate in children initiative, sensitivity and confidence.
Teach the essential skills and concepts at the level most appropriate to each child.
We currently cater for children with the following special education needs or disabilities:
Cognition and learning including dyscalculia and dyslexia
Communication and interaction including autism, speech and language, dyspraxia
Social, emotional and mental health
Sensory and/or physical difficulties including hearing impaired, physical disabilities
We have three registers:
SEND Register: This is for children who have an identified need and have involvement with outside agencies, such as Learning Support, Educational Psychologist etc.
Monitoring Register: This is where children have been identified as being 'off track' in assessments. These children will have targets in their books and be monitored by the class teacher.
Inclusion Register: Children who may have a diagnosed medical need but who are on track.
