At Hilton Lane Primary School we have the highest expectations of all of our children and work hard to ensure that they receive an education to the highest standard. Our team believe that knowing our children and forging positive relationships with them is the first step to understanding how they learn.
Quality First Teaching is the first next step in supporting children who may have SEND. If a child is deemed to require support that is ‘additional to and different from’ a graduated approach using the universal offer is implemented. When we have exhausted every avenue, the SENDCos, along with the views of the child and the partnership of parents and carers will plan tailored interventions, strategies and targets to personalise learning even further. There will be the opportunity for a range of teaching and learning approaches and experiences as well as additional support through adaptive teaching, small group work, 1:1 support, intervention groups and additional activities, in order to enhance their learning and in order for them to succeed.
We firmly believe that all children are entitlement to be educated alongside their peers. As an inclusive community, we are deeply committed to removing the barriers to learning. Our dedicated team work tirelessly to ensure that all children have the right to a fulfilling learning experience, regardless of need. This last year, we have invested in training and courses for staff at all levels to develop their skills further. At Hilton Lane Primary School, we believe that all children have a right to a full and rounded education which will enable them to achieve their full potential. We use our best endeavours to secure special educational provision for pupils for whom this is required, that is ‘additional to and different from’ that provided within the differentiated curriculum to better respond to the four areas of need identified in the Code of Practice (September 2014):
- Social, mental and emotional health
