Teaching pupils with SEN
All pupils in school receive quality first teaching. This means that we provide a broad and varied, inclusive curriculum and employ a range of teaching styles to ensure that all children access a curriculum matched to their needs. At Handford Hall we follow the International Primary Curriculum which is delivered in a topic based approach and use Read, Write Inc to teach early literacy in Early Years and KS1. We emphasise the importance of reading, writing, maths, social and personal skills. We also provide regular opportunities for our children to go on educational visits to ensure they develop their understanding of the wider world. Our curriculum and learning environments are constantly altered to support the needs of the child in consultation with all adults involved with the child. If you would like any further information about the specific details of how we adapt our curriculum for children currently at our school, or how we would be able to include any child with SEN please do not hesitate to contact the SENCO using the details listed below. We aim to follow the graduated approach when working with pupils with SEND, in which we aim to continually assess, plan, implement and review our approach to teaching all pupils, including those with SEND. It is vital that pupils with SEND continue to make good progress and all those who teach and support them maintain the highest aspirations possible.
