Special Educational Needs and Disability
At Nunthorpe Primary Academy, we ensure that all our children receive a high-quality and inclusive education regardless of any special educational needs or disabilities they may have. This means that our pupils with identified Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) may need a carefully planned approach, additional to the quality first teaching they receive, in order to maximise the progress and successes they can achieve. We are ambitious for all of our SEND children, regardless of their particular need, be that Dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Dyspraxia, Speech and Language Development, Learning Difficulties or any other identified need. All of our teachers are teachers of SEND and inclusion is a thread which runs through every aspect of our school.
Through our high-quality planning, teaching and assessment, we:
- Ensure early identification and intervention for SEND to ensure that progress and opportunities are maximised
- Ensure that all children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum which can be differentiated to enable children to understand the relevance and purpose of learning
- Provide an accessible learning environment tailored to meet individual needs
- Develop children’s independence and life skills
- Regularly monitor the progress of children with SEND
- Provide quality, relevant training for all staff working with SEND children
- Work closely with parents and carers
- Work closely with external agencies and professionals to develop and enhance provision for all children with SEND
|Our pupils with SEND learn in a variety of ways:
|Pupils may have specific pre-teaching, 1:1 or small group intervention to support maths, literacy or phonics learning.
|Pupils may take part in additional sessions around communication or social skills, or may receive additional emotional support during more unstructured times in the school timetable.
|Pupils may be given additional support with their speech and language development, using programmes such as Blast.
|Pupils may work with staff from external agencies such as educational psychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, or mental health specialist.
