Inclusion at Barns Green Primary School is the responsibility of the whole school community, permeating all aspects of school life and applicable to all our children. Alongside quality first teaching and a broad and ambitious curriculum, we may provide additional and different provision to support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). The Special Educations Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo), in collaboration with class teachers, will review and support all school-based interventions. The SENDCo will also liaise with external professionals, ensuring appropriate support and interventions are implemented and regularly reviewed. The success of these interventions and strategies are closely monitored and adapted as appropriate.
All interventions and additional provisions provided are personalised to ensure curriculum support is inclusive and meets the needs of individual learners. Alongside this, we also use robust systems to monitor pupil progress, aid academic and personal achievement and remove any barriers to learning. Up-to-date and relevant continuous professional development programmes for our staff ensure a cohesive, whole school approach to inclusion.
