Breadsall Hill Top Primary School is an inclusive school. We ensure that pupils are included in all aspects of learning and school life throughout our school.
From time to time some children require additional support for a set period of time to help meet their needs or improve their learning. The decision to do this is made by the school and is based on a variety of factors including academic progress, and/or assessments carried out by teaching staff or other professionals. It may also be based on ensuring children have a smooth transition into school or require support when going through significant change either at home or school. Parents or carers will be informed when this happens.
Some children will require support for a longer period of time to ensure they can access the curriculum effectively and be included fully in classroom learning and school events. Support will be planned by school staff and where appropriate by external professionals. Parents or carers will be kept informed about this support.
Children who require support in terms of their acquisition of English are not considered SEND pupils but as they may require additional support their needs are reflected in our school provision.
Objectives of our SEND Provision
We aim :-
(a) to enable every pupil to experience success
(b) to keep an on-going register of all children whom we consider to have special educational needs.
(c) to identify those children as early as possible, assess, record and regularly review their progress and needs.
(d) to provide learning programmes geared to their needs.
(e) to work collaboratively with parents, other professionals and support services.
(f) to ensure that parents or carers are able to play their part in supporting their child’s education.
(g) to involve the child, so as to encourage a move from dependent to independent learning.
