Inclusion & SEND

S.E.N.D (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) Support

We are a mainstream, inclusive school that fully complies with the requirements outlined in the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2014). The Code of Practice provides statutory guidance on duties, policies and procedures relating to Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014 and associated regulations. It relates to children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and disabled children and young people.

What are special educational needs?

A child has special educational needs (SEN) if they require provision to be made which is ‘additional to or different from’ that provided for the majority.

At Southgate Primary, we recognise our duties, as stated in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice.

Aims:

  • We will ensure that all pupils with special educational needs have full and equal access to the curriculum and all aspects of school life

  • The school will endeavour, through appropriate use of funding, staffing and professional expertise, to meet the needs of all our children

  • The school will provide a curriculum which is appropriate and matched to individual needs and learning styles

At Southgate we recognise that the quality of teaching within the classroom has the greatest influence over children’s progress. We therefore invest in training, resources and monitoring to ensure our classrooms are an inclusive place for all children. This is known as the ‘Wave 1’ or ‘Quality First Teaching’ level.

Additional interventions at ‘Wave 2’ are planned to enable children to accelerate their progress and work at, or above the expectations for their age. These are generally taught in a small group and sometimes a 1:1 situation. Interventions run for 10 weeks and are reviewed as part of the school’s Pupil Progress structure.

A child identified as having SEND also receives ‘Wave 3’ interventions. These may be provided individually or in a small group, and the support provided is personalised to enable the child to achieve his/her potential. This support is additional to or different from the everyday curriculum for that class and is detailed in an Individual Support Plan (ISP). This plan is prepared by the class teacher, overseen by the SENCO and is reviewed termly. It may also include provision/ advice from an external agency or professional, such as a Speech and Language therapist.

Wave 2

Please read our SEN Information report to find out more about our special educational needs provision here at Southgate Primary.

If you would like more information, please contact contact the SENDCO, Mrs Barton for additional support. or visit our inclusion page for more information.

Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co- ordinator (SENDCO) is Mrs Gemma Barton. If you wish to speak to Mrs Barton, please contact her via the school office on 01293 525 966, or make an appointment by email at office@southgateprimary.co.uk

As part of the National Special Educational Needs Reform, local authorities are required to publish a ‘local offer’ which is intended to provide information about provision available to children with special educational needs in the local area.  At Southgate Primary School we are proud of our inclusive practice and what we can offer to all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

For information on the West Sussex SEND local offer please visit the West Sussex website: https://westsussex.local-offer.org/

Interventions Support

Southgate Primary School supports each child to thrive personally, socially and academically. We give our children opportunities to develop enquiring minds, a lifelong love of learning and to become well rounded member of the community. At Southgate Primary we strongly believe in celebrating every success and preparing our children for the future. Where children need some additional support to help them fully access school life we have a range of programmes to meet their needs. Please see our full programme below:
