Special Educational Needs and Disability

OUR EQUALITY AIMS 

At Waynflete Infants’ School we value all children equally no matter what their special need, disability or background. We are committed to providing equal access, for all children, to a broad and balanced social and academic curriculum, including the Foundation Stage Curriculum and National Curriculum. We are also committed to providing an inclusive school environment for all children to feel safe, happy and have their individual needs met through a wide range of provision.

Our Equality Objectives

 

  • To ensure that all children with physical disabilities can access all of the schools curriculum and activities.
  • To ensure that there is equal numbers of girls/boys achieving the prime areas in the foundation stage.
  • To ensure that EAL parents are aware of and can access all activities within school.
  • To identify, monitor and ensure children with emotional and social disabilities make appropriate progress and are ready to learn.

 

The school has an action plan which details how the above objectives will be achieved. This is reviewed termly and the action plan updated accordingly.

 

LOCAL OFFER

One of the changes bought about by the 2014 Code of Practice was that children and young people with Special Education Needs and/or Disability (SEND) and their families should be central to identification, assessment and planning. This means that it is vital parents know what they can reasonably expect from their school and Local Authority. The outcome of this is that Local Authorities and other services, including schools will set out a Local Offer detailing all of the services available to support children who have SEND.

 

This will mean that...

  • parents can have a greater level of confidence and understanding of processes involved in identification and assessment of SEND
  • an earlier identification of children with SEND can be enabled
  • there will be a reduction in the need for assessment
  • gaps in provision and need will be identified quickly
  • there will be an evidence base for improving progress and securing better outcomes at school and at a local level.

 

At Waynflete Infants’ School we aim that any child, including children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability are well integrated into the life of our school and individuality is celebrated. We strive to do our utmost to support all children regardless of their background or need. This is done in collaboration with the Local Authority in order that all children make the best possible progress in school and reach their potential.
