SEND Information

Our pupils have many skills, abilities and needs. We aim to provide all of our pupils with the experiences, curriculum and provision to ensure they become their best.  We provide an education which focuses on valuing and celebrating each person and the contribution they make to the community.

As part of our provision we implement a range of experiences, interventions and assessments to support their learning. These include:

Speech and language specialist 1to1 and group sessions.
Talking partners/boost and narrative therapy
Play therapy
Specialist TA 1to1 and small group interventions
Nessy and Reading eggs software including literacy and numeracy
Meemo working memory intervention
Continuation with existing provisions including specialist teachers and therapists.
Commando Joe’s – to offer team building, resilience, confidence and enjoyment that the children can apply across their lives.
Reading recovery and O3 reading programmes
Animal assisted therapy
Cool Kids
Staff training to deliver intervention programmes
Development of the green room and staffing to support pupils emotionally.
