Special Education Needs

We at Sherwin Knight Community Infant School are a school staff intent on finding solutions rather than focusing on problems. We believe that each pupil has individual and unique needs. However, some pupils require more support than others. If these pupils are to achieve their full potential, we must recognise this and plan accordingly. We acknowledge that a significant proportion of pupils will have special educational needs at some time in their school career. Many of these pupils may require help throughout their time in school, whilst others may need a little extra support for a short period to help overcome more temporary needs. Sherwin Knight Community Infant School aims to provide all pupils with strategies for dealing with their needs in a supportive environment, and to give them meaningful access to the curriculum. In our Learning and Teaching Policy we focus on the practice in the school and how our system of education responds to diversity. In particular we aim: • to enable every pupil to experience success • to promote individual confidence and a positive attitude • to ensure that all pupils, whatever their special educational needs, receive appropriate educational provision through a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant and differentiated, and that demonstrates coherence and progression in learning • to give pupils with SEN equal opportunities to take part in all aspects of the school’s provision. • to identify, assess, record, and regularly review pupils’ progress and needs • to involve parents/carers/children in planning and supporting at all stages of their development • to work collaboratively with parents, other professionals and support services including the Educational Psychology Service • to ensure that the responsibility held by all staff and governors for SEN is implemented and maintained. All pupils should be involved in making decisions where possible right from the start of their education. The ways in which pupils are encouraged to participate should reflect the pupil’s evolving maturity. Participation in education is a process that will necessitate all pupils being given the opportunity to make choices and to understand that their views matter. Confident young pupils, who know that their opinions will be valued and who can practice making choices, will be more secure and effective pupils during the school years.
