SEND Information

Provision for those children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is a strength of our school. Children are fully included in all aspects of school life and are very well supported by teaching and support staff. This was noted in our recent OFSTED report published in November 2022.

"Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are well supported to succeed in school. Staff make effective use of resources to identify these pupils’ needs quickly and provide them with suitable support. Pupils with SEND receive the extra help they need so that they can learn the same curriculum as their peers."

During different times in a child's school life, they may have a special educational need or require provision that is additional to or different from the usual Quality First Teaching that is in place for all our children.

At Street Lane primary School, all teachers are teachers of children with SEND. Working within the Graduated Approach to SEND provision, all staff work to ensure that all children make progress and receive personalised support. The Graduated Approach is developed through cycles of asses, Plan, Do and Review (APDR). The cycles of APDR provide personalised targets and are outlined on our Individual Education Plans (IEPs). These plans allow us to carefully monitor and assess the impact of provision, identify the outcomes of the provision and plan new targets to ensure progress is being achieved. Teachers review and discuss these plans 3 times per year in conjunction with the child, their parents and the school SENDCo.

On this page you will find statutory policies and additional information about SEND. Please contact our SENDCo, Chloe Curtis, for further information.
