What is SEND?
SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disability) is defined in the Code of Practice as children having a learning difficulty or disability that calls for special educational provision to be made for them.
A child has a learning difficulty or disability:
Have significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
Has a disability which prevents of hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.
We believe every child should succeed and reach their maximum potential irrespective of their level of need or disability. Our aims are:
To identify children with SEND as early as possible and to ensure their needs are met.
To provide an environment where barriers to learning and participation are reduced to a minimum and interventions become part of the daily life at Eastfield.
To ensure interventions are swift and have the maximum impact to remove barriers to learning and have authenticity and honesty if interventions are not effective.
To provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is creatively designed around children’s needs.
To ensure all children, regardless of need or disability, make effective progress in all areas of the curriculum
Keeping in line with our inclusion policy, we design learning to suit the needs of each individual child and to receive support within the classroom setting. This might take the form of small group work, 1:1 work or through normal classroom differentiation. However, some interventions might take place out of the classroom as some children need to that nurturing, quiet time to overcome barriers to learning that the majority of the class may not have.
Our school has two floors. The majority of facilities are on the ground floor with a disabled toilet near the school entrance. Year 5 & 6 and year 3 & 4 are on the upper floors and there is accessible routes throughout.
The SEND Information Report
As part of the Code of Practice 2014, the school is required to produce a report of SEN. The report details how the school coordinates SEN and the processes that are in place either in identification of SEN or the process or journey of children with SEN at Eastfield.
Our report contributes to the North East Lincolnshire Local Offer which can be found at: http://localoffer.nelincs.gov.uk/EarlyYears/LocalOffer/Default.aspx
