Newnham Infant and Nursery School Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Statement of Intent
Newnham Infant and Nursery School recognises every child as special and unique. We strive to help them all be the best that they can be from their individual starting points. To help them on their journey we recognise the importance of all children having equal opportunities and being able to learn and grow in an inclusive environment. To enable this we understand that not all children learn in the same way and that we may need to alter our provision, adapt our teaching style and resources and modify our expectations. It is key for us to understand how they experience their world and support from the child’s perspective. We encourage and value the support of all agencies who work with our children and we work in partnership with parents and carers.
At Newnham Infant and Nursery School we:
- Provide curriculum access for all through quality first teaching.
- Give every child the opportunity to develop their full potential and be the best that they can be emotionally and academically.
- Identify at the earliest opportunity, children that need support, whether educational, social, physical or emotional.
- Meet individual needs through a wide range of provision.
- Attain high levels of satisfaction and participation from pupils, parent and carers.
- Carefully map provision for all vulnerable learners to ensure that staffing deployment, resource allocation and choice of intervention is leading to good learning outcomes.
- Ensure a high level of staff expertise to meet pupil need, through well-targeted continuing professional development.
- Ensure staff follow the current SEND code of practice.
- Work in cooperative and productive partnership with the Local Authority and other outside agencies, to ensure there is a multi-professional approach to meeting the needs of all vulnerable learners.
- “Promote children’s self-esteem and emotional well-being and help them to form and maintain worthwhile relationships based on respect for themselves and others”. (National Curriculum, 2000).
