At Greenmeadow Primary School we believe that every individual is important and should be included in all aspects of school life. We aim to support and guide every pupil to achieve their best including those pupils with special educational needs or disabilities. We believe that provision should take into account the needs of each individual pupil in order to remove barriers to their learning, allowing them to progress alongside their peers. Greenmeadow Primary School recognises that every teacher is a teacher of every child, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.(SEND)
Some children have particular learning and assessment requirements that could create barriers to learning.These requirements are likely to arise as a consequence of a child having special educational needs. Teachers take account of these requirement and make provision, where necessary, to support individuals or groups of children enabling them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities.
At Greenmeadow we support our pupils through a four step cycle that continues across universal, targeted and specialist support.
Parents/carers are encouraged to take part fully in the process of assess, plan, do and review. We believe that working closely with parents/carers and the child enables us to more fully understand pupil needs and plan provision more effectively. An outcomes based approach allows us to assess the progress made by each child and adjust support where necessary.
