The individuality of EVERY child is celebrated and valued at Beddington Park Primary School!
Every child is special and every child is unique. Sometimes some of the myriad of factors that contribute to this uniqueness may also mean that a particular type of consideration is needed in order to ensure that a child has equal access to our wonderful and diverse curriculum. Where this is the case, a child may fall under our SEND remit.
SEND is an acronym, standing for ‘Special Educational Needs and Disability’. The way in which we are able to approach SEND practice forms what is termed our ‘Local Offer’.
Our Local Offer
The aim of our Local Offer is to provide effective support, differentiation and provision within a framework that is inclusive in outlook and provides strong and effective levels of communication. The school will work closely with parents and carers, and other outside agencies where relevant, in order to craft and tailor the very best provision for SEND children.
At Beddington Park Primary, we will:
- Provide a differentiated curriculum, appropriate to the needs and ability of the individual child.
- Identify all children requiring SEND input as early as possible in their school career, in order that provision will have maximum positive impact.
- Ensure that all children requiring SEND provision are as fully involved as possible in all aspects of school life.
- Do all we can to fully and appropriately involve and inform parents concerning the performance and attainment of their child.
- Ensure that children benefitting from SEND provision are appropriately involved choices and decisions affecting their education.
The SEND provision across our school is overseen by Mrs Leeder, our Inclusion Manager.
A child receiving SEND support will do so on according to three different stages. this are:
- ‘School Support’ – at this level interventions and activities will be largely or wholly school based.
- ‘Enhanced School Support’ – this level denotes where children are receiving significant input from outside agencies, in addition to school based support.
- ‘Education, Health and Care Plan’ (EHCP) – children who are in receipt of an EHCP will have a specified amount of one to one adult directed support. An EHCP lists personalised targets and is reviewed annually. EHCPs are authorised at a local authority level, following an extended period of evidence gathering and assessment. EHCP documents supercede the erstwhile ‘Statement of Special Educational Needs’.
Further details of the types of provision contained within our Local Offer are exemplified in the document linked below:
