At Broadheath Church of England Primary School we endeavour to make  a fun-filled, creative environment for learning in which we all do the very best we can and reach high standards of achievement. It is a safe place where we study interesting subjects, enjoy different activities, develop our own interests and learn to live healthy and safe lives.

As a Christian school we are a fair, caring place to work where people respect each other’s beliefs and feelings and work together in friendship, compassion and trust, valuing each person as unique and precious.

We encourage everyone to make a positive contribution to our school and the wider community both now and in the future.

What kinds of special needs are provided for in this school?

At Broadheath, we believe that every pupil, regardless of gender, race or disability, has a right to equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

We consider it essential that the curriculum is presented in a supportive and stimulating atmosphere, which values each child and encourages them to achieve their full potential.

This encompasses the four main areas of SEND.

  • Communication and interaction
  • Cognition and learning
  • Social, mental and emotional health
  • Sensory and/or physical

Broadheath CE Primary School’s SEND Information Report is written with full regard to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

A full copy of this report is also available below.

SEND Offer

How will my child be supported to be part of the school?

 

We believe that every child is an individual and should be valued. We believe that all children should have their needs met and should be given an equal access to the curriculum.

Our aim is to provide individual and small group provision for those children with Special Education Needs and or Disability, whatever those needs may be, so that they can reach their full potential. We feel that their contribution to school life should be valued and we seek to build their self-esteem. For more information please view details of admission procedure into our school.

Pastoral care

Mrs Tracy Stack is our Pastoral Care Lead, supported by Miss S Rothwell. They are available for the children to speak to if they need support. They provide times that they will meet with children and/ or parents as necessary.  Mrs Tracy Stack leads our nurture provision, which includes activities such as: Lego; art and drama therapy as appropriate.

How will I know how my child is doing?

 

At Broadheath CE Primary School your child’s progress is continually monitored by their class teacher, SENDCo and the Leadership Team.

  • The progress is reviewed every half term and an attainment grade is given in reading, writing and mathematics.
  • If your child is in Year 1 and above, but is not yet working within the National Curriculum, a more sensitive assessment tool is used which shows their level in more detail and will also show smaller but significant steps of progress. The levels are called ‘P levels’.
  • At the end of each key stage (i.e. at the end of year 2 and year 6) all children are required to be formally assessed using Standard Assessment Tests (SATS). This is something the government requires all schools to do and these are the results that are published nationally.
  • Children on the School SEND register will have an Individual Pupil Passport (IPP) see Appendix A. This has targets set for your child and will be reviewed regularly. You will be invited to attend a meeting in order for us to review and set new targets together.
  • The progress of children with an Educational Health Care (EHC) Plan is formally reviewed at an Annual Review with all adults involved with the child’s education.
  • The Leadership Team and SENDCo will also check that your child is making good progress with any individual work and in any group that they take part in.
  • A range of ways will be used to keep you informed, which may include:
  • Home liaison book
  • Parents’ evenings
  • Additional meetings as required (structured conversations)
  • Reports
