At Ormesby Primary School we strive to make a difference to all children to enable them to achieve and many steps are taken during their learning journey to ensure that all children can access their education, irrespective of any additional needs they may have.
Our school policy for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is in line with the SEN Code of Practice 0-25 Years, which provides statutory guidance for the effective inclusion of children in mainstream education. According to the code of practice;
“A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:
- have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
- b) have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.
A child under compulsory school age has special educational needs if they fall within the definition of the above or would do so if special educational provision was not made for them.
Children must not be regarded as having a learning difficulty solely because the language or form of language of their home is different from the language in which they will be taught.”
In following our policy all children, including those with SEND, will be offered access to a broad, balanced and relevant education. Through appropriate support and well-planned provision, children will be enabled to reach expected outcomes and make good progress. Ormesby Primary School promotes high expectations and aspirations for all children to ensure that they achieve, develop confidence, build self-esteem and make positive contributions.
At Ormesby Primary School we are committed to using a person-centred approach that puts families at the centre of the education that their child receives. Through regular meetings and an open, supportive approach, we will work together to ensure that all children receive a fully inclusive education. Quality first teaching is vital to ensure children reach their full potential, however there are occasions when further additional support may be needed. We aim to create a positive atmosphere of trust, mutual respect and high expectations between pupils, staff, parents and other professionals. We are determined to ensure that we provide a happy, safe and calm environment where children behave well and develop into confident, creative and independent learners.
Mrs Taylor is our SENDCO and it is her role to co-ordinate all aspects of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities within our school. Whilst Mrs Taylor is on maternity leave, Miss Chapman is our SENDCO.
