At Elstow School we believe that it is every child’s right to achieve his/her full potential regardless of ability, gender, race or socio-economic circumstance. We recognise that although the majority of children should achieve this through the normal differentiated curriculum, there are some children whose learning or behaviour requires special provision.
Individual Needs Protocol at Great Ouse Primary Academy (GOPA)
• Monitor and overview progress as well as assessing the ‘whole child.’
• Whole child is assessed under:
• Cognitive and learning – this description applies to children whose learning difficulties mean that they learn at a slower pace than their peers even with appropriate differentiation. Learning difficulties covers a wide range of needs. They can be specific such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia or cover all areas learning.
• Social emotional and mental health difficulties – this will include disorders such as attention deficit disorder as well social and emotional difficulties which can manifest themselves in different ways.
• Communication and interaction– this will include children who have speech, language and communication needs and have difficulty in communicating with others. This also includes children for whom social interaction is difficult.
• Sensory and/or physical needs – this covers children who require special educational provision because they have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making full use of the educational facilities generally provided within a school.
• These are further assessed under the ‘Waves of Learning.’
‘To develop a learning environment that will maximise the progress of all, including vulnerable children and the most able.’
Together there is no question that we want the highest possible standards of education and care for the children. Sharnbrook Academy Federation is an organisation where children achieve and enjoy; make their own positive contribution; where their health, safety and well-being is understood and promoted.
We aim to create a school community in which every child matters and thrives. We provide each child with the opportunity for growth – personal, emotional and intellectual. We aim to ensure that every child fulfils their potential and has the opportunity to excel.
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.
