Supporting Special Educational Needs
As an inclusive school we ensure all pupils have equal access to the curriculum. Where children are recognised as having a special educational need, provision is tailored accordingly and a programme of intervention and additional support is designed in relation to pupil progress. This is developed by the Inclusion Leader in consultation with the class teacher, who liaises with multi agencies, parents and carers as necessary. Pupils with Special Educational Needs are admitted to the school in accordance with the requirements of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act of 2001. Our SEND pupils represent a significant and important part of the school community which aims to be an inclusive and supportive environment for all children. The school seeks to ensure that all placements are properly planned and that all necessary support is available to ensure maximum success. We also ensure that every member of the school community, including parents and visitors are catered for through the principles and guidlines laid out in our Equlities policy (see section below for link). Pupils identified as being gifted or talented are also thoroughly catered for in order to extend and deepen pupil understanding. There are many opportunities for these children to benefit from tailored support in class, access to specialist teaching within school and external specialist projects.
At Fleet, we are committed to the well-being and progress of every child and we value all our community members equally. This commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality and fostering good relationships is supported by the Equality Act framework. The framework also ensures that disadvantage and underachievement of different groups, when identified, are addressed. These duties and commitments comply with international human rights standards as expressed in the UNCRC, the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities and the Human Rights Act 1998. The work we do as a Right Respecting School supports this.
