Teaching pupils with SEND is a whole school responsibility, requiring a whole school response.

Central to the work of every class and every subject teacher is a continuous cycle of planning, teaching, assessment and evaluation that takes account of the wide range of abilities, aptitudes and interests of the pupils. The starting point will always be a review of the strategies being used and the way in which these might be developed. The majority of the pupils will learn and progress within these arrangements; however, for pupils with SEND, there may be a need to provide an enhanced level of provision that supports and enhances their learning abilities.

Ian Ramsey Church of England Academy adopts a graduated response to meet those needs. It may require an initial use of classroom resources before using specialist expertise. When a young person is identified as having SEND, the pupil will be put on the SEN Register and the school will:

  • Use information from the Primary or previous school to support the pupil
  • Ensure that ongoing observation and assessment provides feedback about the pupil’s achievements to inform future planning
  • Involve the pupil in planning and agreeing targets to meet their needs
  • Involve parents in developing a joint learning approach at home and at school
  • Use standardised screening and assessment tools
  • Provide interventions that are additional to or different from those provided as part of the school’s usual differentiated curriculum
