Who’s on the SEND Team?
The SEND Team at MVM involves everybody. Every teacher and member of staff is responsible for ensuring pupils with SEND have a positive learning experience and make progress.
The day to day leadership and management of SEND across the school has been charged to the SENDCo, who works closely with parents, pupils, teachers, support staff and external agencies.
Everyone on the team is recognised for being skilled, hardworking and committed to placing pupils’ aspirations at the heart of everything we do.
We value pupils as individuals and want them to feel safe and supported to enable them to be confident and to flourish regardless of their special needs or differences. This is vital for them to grow up to lead happy, healthy and successful lives. Our aim is to prepare them for adulthood.
How we achieve this
Provision for pupils with SEND begins with high quality first teaching. At MVM we have clearly recorded our core offer. Thereafter, we collaboratively decide on appropriate provision that is ‘additional to and different from’.
In collaboration with parents, governors and the community we aim to provide an accessible curriculum by removing barriers to learning and addressing needs.
At Marston Middle School we value individuals, welcome diversity and believe in achievement, ambition and progress for all pupils. In order to do this, many steps are taken to support pupil through their learning journey. Quality first teaching is vital; however for some pupil there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their potential.
There is an emphasis on early identification of needs through supportive and preventative strategies which reduce barriers to learning.
We work in a flexible way to develop effective partnerships with pupil and their parents/carers, staff and external agencies to ensure that the school can meet a broad range of special educational needs and foster a culture of lifelong learning and independent living skills for all pupil.
At Rushmoor we aim to enable pupils to acquire the knowledge, wisdom and self-discipline appropriate for life-long learning, employment and adult life. To achieve this aim we ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to develop their intellectual, physical and creative gifts, across a broad and balanced curriculum.
We promote the personal development of pupils, encouraging lively and enquiring minds, respect for themselves and others as well as a high regard for truth. We encourage self-confidence, integrity, social responsibility and awareness in students. Pupils learn to show respect and active concern for their school surroundings and for the wider environment.
Our aim is to provide an environment in which every pupil can achieve the highest standards in all aspects of school life in preparation for the challenges of the future. The stability and security of continuous education on one site, spanning the age range from 2 – 16 years is a major factor in helping us achieve this.
Developing the Individual
We place a major emphasis on the individual, recognising that all children are different, and we value each and every one in their own right. Each child has his or her own talents and abilities and we aim to encourage each one to develop their own special strengths and to grow in confidence and self-esteem to find their role in the community. Happiness is the first essential in this.
Through our pastoral care system, we aim to help each child to develop their potential in both academic and extra-curricular fields by encouragement, understanding and a close working relationship between children, staff and parents.
Whilst every effort is made to draw out the academic potential of each individual, we consider it equally important that the children should grow up to be confident, caring, honest and responsible young people, capable of making a positive contribution to the society in which they live and work.
We strongly uphold the Christian principles in as far as they refer to the way in which we behave towards each other. In practise, it means that we teach our children honesty, integrity, compassion and a true respect for all around them.
WHAT IS THE NATIONAL TRIAL?
The Government are extending the powers of the First-tier Tribunal (SEND), sometimes referred to as the ‘SEND Tribunal’, to make non-binding recommendations about the health and social care aspects of Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans as part of a two-year trial. The trial will apply to decisions made or EHC plans issued/amended from 3 April 2018.
To date, you have only been able to appeal the educational aspects of EHC plans. The trial gives you new rights to request recommendations about the health and social care needs and provision specified in EHC plans, in addition to the educational aspects, when making a SEND appeal. This gives you the opportunity to raise all your concerns about an EHC plan in one place.
It is only possible for the Tribunal to consider the health and/or social care aspects of the EHC plan where you are already making an appeal in relation to the education aspects of the EHC plan and the education aspect must remain live throughout the appeal.
We are a non-selective school for pupils aged between 6 weeks and 18 years. Our school site comprises of a range of buildings and sites.
First and most importantly we value your child as a unique individual. We look for your daughter’s or son’s strengths, academic and personal, and do our utmost to develop these.
At the same time we are sensitive to those aspects of your daughter’s or son’s academic work or personal growth which need further development. With sensitivity and tact we will help your child to make significant progress in these areas.
Our aim is to prepare your daughter or son for a happy and successful adult life, in which her or his personal qualities and values will be as important as her or his academic achievements.
We work with parents to make reasonable adjustments for pupils with additional needs on a case by case basis. On the rare occasion that this is not possible we aim to support parents in finding alternative placements.
We provide a caring and happy community where everyone is valued and given the opportunity to strive for the very best.
A community where a golden thread of Christian beliefs and practice weaves through everything we do.
We recognise and cherish each individual’s talents and encourage their aspirations by providing a stimulating environment, grounded in Christian values and laying the foundations for their life journey.
Through an inspirational creative curriculum children are motivated to take ownership of their learning and aim for excellence.
