We are a large mainstream primary with 14 classes. 2 parallel classes in each year group, as well as a morning and afternoon Nursery. We currently support 108 pupils throughout school with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND),of which 14 children have the protection of an Education Health Care Plan and 3 children have additional top up funding via SEND and Inclusion Panel.
EHC Plan Y1 to Y6 = 3% (12/353 children). National Average = 1.6%
SEND support Y1 to Y6 = 22% (76/353 children). National Average – 14.2%
SEND support Foundation = 16% (18/111 children)
EHC Plan Foundation = 2 in reception classes.
We support children with a range of SEND needs including those with Speech, Language and Communication Needs
(SLCN) Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH), ASD, Hearing and Visual Impairments(HI & VI), Physical Difficulty (PD), Moderate Learning Difficulty (MLD) and those with a Specific Learning Difficulty (SPLD) such as dyslexia or dyspraxia.
Our school has a number of highly skilled, experienced and friendly support staff that work across the whole school including a forest leader , a Learning Mentor , a Behaviour & Inclusion Mentor. We have 3 diabetic trained staff and 4 HLTA’s and 4 cover supervisors. Our support staff are fully trained in emotion coaching and MAPA de-escalation and distraction techniques. We also have a calm room in which children have a safe place to desensitize – this room has high impact foam walls, soft furnishing and sensory lightening. We also have an afternoon accredited Nurture Group (Sparklers) which supports a small group of learners throughout the school day. In September 2019 we increased our Nurture provision with 1 further morning and 2 afternoon groups to support small groups of children. We have supported schools locally and nationally to set up their own Nurture group.
Question 1 ( How do we support and assist children with a physical disability?)from the list below sets out our Accessibility Plan in relation to the Equality Act 2010.
