How We Meet Our Children’s Needs

Stratford upon-Avon Primary School embraces an inclusive school, recognising each child as a unique individual with distinct needs and aspirations. Our commitment involves early identification, targeted learning delivery, and ensuring that every student achieves their full potential across personal, social, emotional, and academic dimensions of the curriculum. This dedication extends to all children, irrespective of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, physical ability, or educational requirements.

During their educational journey, some children may require additional support. Our initial line of assistance comes from our skilled class teachers, who are well-positioned to understand each child's needs. They engage in planning activities, offer tailored learning strategies, create timetables, deliver high-quality lessons and adaptations, and continually assess progress to facilitate each child's development and success. The SEN team and teaching staff collaboratively respond to children' needs through a variety of carefully tailored interventions.

In certain cases, a student may exhibit more defined additional needs in areas such as:

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognitive and Learning
  • Behavioural, Emotional, and Social Development
  • Sensory and/or Physical

For children with additional needs, close collaboration with parents/carers is essential, and, when appropriate, the views of the student are sought. Termly meetings with parents/carers/children are held to identify barriers to learning and agree on targeted interventions. Individual Education Plans (IEP) are created and reviewed termly.

Provision may also involve seeking advice from external partnerships to identify appropriate additional support. Stratford upon-Avon Primary School receives support from various external agencies, including:

  • Educational Psychologists (EP)
  • Speech and Language Therapists (SALT)
  • Early Intervention Service (EIS)
  • Family Information Services (FIS)
  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)
  • Counselling Services – Time for Hope
  • School Nurse
  • Parenting Project
  • Occupational Health and Physiotherapy
  • SEND Support Team
  • Inclusion Specialist Teacher Service

These services play a crucial role in supporting and enhancing our ability to provide additional expertise.

For children with complex SEND, the frequency of such provision may lead to the school applying for additional funding to support the child. Children with more pronounced needs receive support in accordance with their Statement of Additional Learning Needs or their Education, Health, and Care Plan.
