How we adapt the curriculum and learning environment for children & young people with SEN
We adapt the curriculum and learning environment for pupils with SEN:
For all children, we aim to provide:
- Access to a varied and stimulating curriculum which is relevant to the needs of the children.
- Different teaching approaches based on the needs of the children.
- Hands on learning and as many school trips as we possibly can.
- A range of technology to support and aid teaching.
- Opportunities for small group and independent work.
- Opportunities to develop self-esteem, independent learning, involvement in decision making and problem solving.
- One or more teaching assistant in every class.
For some children we will:
- Provide additional targeted support e.g. phonics groups using the Rapid Phonics, Nessy, 1:1 Phonics and Literacy Intervention; Comprehension and Reading Groups; Handwriting and Movement Groups; Rapid Maths Intervention and Year 2 and 6 1:1 SATs after school tutorial revision.
We provide access to a supportive environment.
- All resources are available to the children. The children are encouraged to use them in their own time.
- Resources are up to date and iPads are used across the school.
- We have the support of a range of professionals including speech and language support, occupational therapy support and we have links to the NHS and Medical Professionals such as CAMHS Clinical psychologist and specialist nurses.
