At Much Birch CE Primary our first concern, when thinking about children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), is that the children feel happy and valued. All children with SEND have exactly the same opportunities to participate in the curriculum, after school clubs, school performances and school trips as everyone else.
The class teachers set their classrooms up carefully to provide support for children with SEND and monitor the learning of those children with the SENCo and Senior Leadership Team at regular progress meetings. We offer a wide range of interventions, where children can work as part of a small group, or in some cases individually, with teaching assistants who have been trained to deliver them.
Our recent OFSTED (May 2014) stated that ‘Pupils with SEND make good progress.’
