How will the teaching be adapted for my child with SEND?


Class teachers along with specialist staff  plan lessons according to the specific needs of all groups of children in their class  and will ensure that your child’s needs are met.

  •          Support staff, under the direction of the class teacher or senco, can adapt planning to support the needs of your child where necessary.

  •          Specific resources and strategies (see list of current interventions) will be used to support your child individually and in groups.

  •          Planning  and teaching will be adapted, on a daily basis if needed, to meet your child’s learning needs.
