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.

Sarah is a qualified special needs teacher and for the last five years has been studying Animal Assisted Therapy. The Society for Companion Animal Studies explains that Animal Assisted Therapy is facilitated by health service professionals; such as therapists, teachers and nurses. AAT is goal-directed. There are a range of focus areas that can be developed with the use of AAT including, physical, social, emotional and mental health. Animal assisted therapists formally plan and monitor sessions. Goals are discussed with key professionals and/or parents (these can be linked to EHCPlans) and individual plans are designed. Detailed feedback is provided. These sessions last an hour and usually range from 6-12 sessions, depending on the client’s needs.
Sarah has taken part in rigorous training, by a leader in the field, Dr Risë VanFleet and is now a Certified Professional Practitioner in Animal Assisted Play Therapy™, one of few in the UK.
