“Many children who are not progressing as expected, or are falling behind their peers, can be supported, and have their needs met, through normal teaching and learning strategies, modification to teaching approaches and to classroom organisation, or through provision of ancillary equipment and aids.”
Code of Practice, DfES, 2014.
At North Primary School, we recognised and offer an inclusive curriculum, where every child, including those identified with SEN, can imagine, believe and achieve, both within and beyond the classroom.
We understand that the holistic needs of a child must be met to ensure their future happiness, success, independence and resilience. Through making reasonable adjustments, and working closely with trained staff and outside professional experts, we endeavour to maintain:
High levels of attendance to ensure personalised targets are met,
Retention of new information through our connected curriculum,
Open communication with the pupil, parents/carers and other involved adults to monitor and track progression and
What is the Local Offer?
Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer’. The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents and carers in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area. Ealing Local Offer can be found:
