Trinity Church School is dedicated to inclusive practice and welcomes all children and their families, including those pupils with disabilities and special educational needs. This is reflected very strongly in our Christian ethos and our whole school values.
We aim to provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum that provides relevant and challenging learning for all pupils.
We are mindful however, of the diverse needs of our learners and recognise that not all children will be able to access the curriculum and reach their potential without help.
There may be occasions throughout a child’s time with us when they require additional support and we work closely with families and outside agencies such as Educational psychologists, speech and language therapists, Occupational Therapists and behaviour support to ensure we fully meet the needs of all of our learners
Where children have special educational needs, that is: if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them, that provision will be ‘additional to and different from that which would normally be provided in the classroom’.
Mrs Clair Hurley is the SEND Coordinator. She works closely with the teachers to identify those children who are in need of additional support and in ensuring that these children receive the differentiated provision and additional support they require to make good progress. She does this with the assistance of a team of specially trained teaching assistants. To contact our SENCO directly please email firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a Governor for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) who ensures that the school is held to account for improving outcomes for pupils with SEN or disabilities.
If you are concerned about your child’s learning, your first conversation should be with your child’s class teacher as they work with your child on a day to day basis and therefore know them best.
For a more detailed account of what can be offered to support children with SEND and how this is implemented, please refer to SEN Information Report for Parents and SEND Policy.
