SEN Offer 2017
Eden Primary value all children and have high expectations and aspirations for everyone regardless of differences in abilities, interests and attitudes.
This is achieved by high quality first teaching and by identifying any special needs or barriers to learning early through developing detailed knowledge and understanding of each child as an individual. Where a child may have special educational needs or disabilities, we meet with parents and work together with them and the child to identify ambitious outcomes based on our knowledge of each child’s aptitudes and preferences. We work in partnership, with outside professionals as well if appropriate, to plan a personalised programme of support and evaluation which will consist of regular detailed assessments, allocation of additional/specialised resources, close monitoring and a relevant and differentiated curriculum. This is then put into place to
support the children’s learning and ensure they are able to fully participate in the life of the school and make a positive contribution to the school and wider community. The plan and its effectiveness is reviewed regularly and this process forms the cycle of support.
All our teachers are teachers of children with SEND and are responsible for the progress and development of the children in their class and as a school we are therefore committed to
developing all staff’s expertise in working with children with SEND. We have an SEN hub in which outside professionals work in school with identified children and their teachers to develop school staff’s specialist expertise and meet children’s needs in a holistic way.
