At the Oratory R.C. Primary and Nursery School, pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are supported by every means possible. Lessons are differentiated and ensure that all pupils can access a full range of learning opportunities.
The Senior Leadership Team (SLT) monitor pupil progress using the data collected termly. Pupils who are not making sufficient progress are identified and might attend intervention groups.
Teaching and learning is also monitored by a robust quality assurance calendar to ensure all pupils are accessing Quality First Teaching. After this, if pupils are still not making enough progress, then they are monitored closely by all staff led by Mrs Moore (Interim SENDCo) and an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) is produced. This details their targets and the support provided to meet their individual needs.
Mrs Moore supports class teachers and practitioners with the accurate identification of pupils with additional needs and maintains a regularly updated record of support.
The SLT ensure all statutory requirements are met and pupils, parents and carers are provided with transparent and coherent information about their child's needs and progress. Full advantage is taken of support from external agencies and providers; capacity is also built within the school’s own workforce through targeted CPD and training.
Teaching Assistants, including Higher Level Teaching Assistants, are deployed according to their skills and qualifications and the impact of all waves of intervention will be carefully monitored by the SLT.
The school’s aim is to ensure that all its pupils achieve their full potential, according to their needs.
