We adapt the curriculum and learning environment for pupils with SEN in a number of ways, depending on the nature of each child’s needs. Such strategies include:
- Differentiation of work in class (and homework)
- Additional small group support with a teacher or support staff
- Additional resources e.g. word banks, number squares, use of commercial schemes
- Teaching activities to be adapted to the preferred learning style of the child, e.g. a multisensory, practical approach or use of visual cues
- Use of ICT to support learning
- Individual behaviour systems/charts
- Adaptation of Curriculum resources or classroom displays
- Targeted interventions to support specific difficulties (i.e. dyslexia, dyspraxia)
- Use of Makaton to support communication skills
We believe that supporting all children to learn and participate in all aspects of school life is important. In addition to the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, our children are offered a range of experiences and opportunities in which they can develop social skills including resilience and independence.
More details on how we adapt information, our environment and curriculum can be found in the Accessibility Plan which you can find in the School Policies section of our website.
