SEND

 

At Intack Primary School we believe that all our children have an equal right of access to a broad and balanced curriculum, which enables them to achieve educational success and to reach their full potential.  All children within the school, regardless of any disability or special educational needs they may have, are valued for their individual contributions.  We use our best endeavours to meet each child's needs and make reasonable adjustments to enable children and their families to participate fully in the life of the school. 

 

Intack Primary School provides a welcoming environment, which embraces the diversity of all children who attend, and recognises the enrichment this provides to the whole school. All children are special and unique and deserve high quality provision for learning according to their individual needs. Inclusion is most likely to be achieved when this diversity is recognised and regarded positively. It is estimated that one pupil in five will at some time during his/her school life need some extra help.

 

These needs may be related to:

  • Cognitive Difficulties

  • Sensory & Physical Impairments

  • Speech & Language Problems

  • Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties

 

Each child, as his/her needs arise, demands more individual attention than his/her peers without such needs. These special needs can be “long-term” or “short-term”. This raises many issues in the school environment in terms of resources, organisation, management, appropriate curriculum, planning, assessing and monitoring. The education of a child is a partnership between the child, parents, school, and when necessary, specialist services which support a child with Special Educational Needs. Therefore, dialogue and equal access are important at all stages of a child’s education in order to give opportunities that will develop the child’s skills and abilities.

 

Our aims for our pupils are:

  • To raise the aspirations of and expectations for all pupils with SEN

  • To ensure all children are “safe, happy and learning”, giving them the experience of a caring, supportive school where learning is enjoyable and fun

  • To help each child develop a positive self-image, promoting self-discipline, self-awareness and self-confidence

  • To adapt the curriculum to meet a diversity of interests and needs associated with differing abilities, gender and backgrounds, both cultural and socio-economic

  • To give all pupils a curriculum entitlement that is broad, balanced and relevant
